Resource:The Polar Express
Provider:The Polar Express
Summary:Age Range: 4-10 (Grades K-5, with parental supervision). One of the best-loved holiday books is The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. This timeless story captures the imagination of children everywhere.
Description:We thought it would be fun to explore learning language arts through this magical tale of a boy who takes a night-time train ride to the North Pole.

When you get to the site, you'll find a link to download an extensive discussion guide and a list of additional curriculum connections:
  • Creative Writing/Language Arts - Brainstorm winter words; ask children to imagine their own magical midnight train ride and write about it, list all of the adjectives, then verbs, then nouns.

  • Read-Aloud - Have a Polar Express Party! Click the link to download a complete party kit.

  • Science/Geography - Find the North Pole on a globe or map, and write a short report on its characteristics.

  • Topics for Further Research - Polar ice cap, Northern lights, reindeer

  • And more!
When you think you’ve done everything you can, find the link to “More Games & Fun” to access activities, games and recipes.
