Design a Doughnut!

Research what a bear, woodchuck, skunk, or other animal likes to eat, then design a doughnut for that animal.

If you want to, post your design and tag me on social media, or send an email with a picture of your doughnut to carriefinison at gmail [dot com]. I'd love to hear from you!

Count the Doughnuts

While you read the story, count and record how many doughnuts each character eats. Who ate the most? Who ate the least? One worksheet provides space for students to write a number sentence to express what happened in the story. The other (for younger students) allows space to draw the doughnuts and then count and write the total number.

Count the Doughnuts Interactive


This Google slide is set up to enable students drag and drop doughnuts from the story onto the plates of each character. (Use in Google Slides "Edit" mode, not in "Present" mode.)
