Grade 7-History: In 1991, mountain climbers on the Niederjoch Glacier on the Italian-Austrian border came across a very different type of body. It had been a very warm summer, and five bodies had already turned up in the area. But the materials found with this body suggested it might be very old, perhaps from the 1800s. But radiocarbon dating proved the iceman was 5,300 years older, from the Copper Age. He was named Ötzi and he is the oldest human mummy preserved in ice ever found.

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont & David Caltrow (2005) -- This award winning book introduces us to a mischievous little boy who paints nearly every conceivable body part. Set to rhyme, this book is a great way to model reading strategies. It’s also great fun and filled with an explosion of color. Warning: I hate to give away the ending, but there is a picture of the boy’s backside and underwear….and a full-on reference to "butt" which may unnerve some adult readers. Kids love it.
Pineapple Paintbrush: My Favorite Art Books for Children (Part 1) This was my students' and my favorite book, especially for school's that like to integrate the arts. There are other things you can do with it besides read and sing.
I Ain't Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont with stunning illustrations by David Catrow. This is such a great book to read aloud in group situation. Image found on Barnes website
