The Giving Tree is a story told time and time again and still its meaning holds true. It will always be relevant. This is a long picture book that describes the love a tree has for a boy who only takes advantage of her generosity. As a class I believe we discussed lots of fun activities that could go with this book!
Kat and I wrote a lesson plan where we would get the kids engaged by asking "Have you ever taken anything without being appreciative or saying thank you? Has anyone ever taken advantage of your generosity?" at which point we would probably have a vocabulary lesson. Then at the end of the story, we wanted to use a PROBLEM/SOLUTION chart which is important for children in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade because it teaches the how to solve problems independently.
