I am in love with this book!
I heard about it a few years ago at a Georgia Social Studies Curriculum Training and just had to check it out! The kids love it! I use it every year now in my economics unit- scarcity!
The Great Fuzz Frenzy, by Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel is all about how a group of prairie-dogs encounter a strange fuzzy thing— a tennis ball! At first they are too scared to touch it, but soon enough, the bunch whirls into chaos as each one wants their own piece! Talk about perfect for teaching scarcity! The kids love the pictures (especially the pull out page) and it’s a quick read with a ton of punch for instruction!
Check out the Author's website where an elementary school in Texas made a Fuzz Frenzy Pumpkin for Halloween! too cute!
