The musician cat by the 4th graders

The last book the 4th graders studied was Le Cochon à l’Oreille Coupée that tells the stories of twin pig brothers; one of them discovers painting and it is a revelation that will change his life forever.
At the end of the study of the book, the students had to write a story inspired by that plot: tell the story of a cat who becomes a musician.
Not only did they have to imagine how the cat would discover music in the first place but also tell the evolution of that discovery and the impact of the cat’s life.
It was a very successful project that ended by students reading their stories in front of their peers.
