My idea of camping is a rustic cabin. I’ve stayed in the cabin you see in the photo to the left. It does have electricity…but no running water. (Yes, it has the dreaded outhouse.) Before you get all impressed, a quick five minute walk through the woods brings you to the main Bed and Breakfast, which has a lovely bathroom. 🙂 I do not have a great love for traditional camping. That’s why it’s so amusing to me that I think camping as a classroom theme is so cool! There are so many fun sources out there to make this theme super special in your classroom. Here are my favorites!
Check out this list of excellent camping-themed picture books. (My personal favorite? A Camping Spree With Mr. Magee.)
