Classroom Activities

There are so many ways to incorporate The House That She Built into your classroom or group activities. If you'd like to inquire about having the author and illustrator visit your class in-person or via Zoom, please reach out through our contact page, we'd love to set something up!

Activity ideas:
• Always start by reading the book aloud and then asking the questions on the last page.
• Birdhouse building! Purchase simple birdhouse building kits for your group and relate the steps of building to the women in the book. 
Example:
Laying out the instructions = Architect
Organize/prep materials = General Contractor
Clearing your workspace = Excavator
Building the house = Framer, Roofer
Decorate = Interior Designer, Painter, Tiler, Landscaper
