There are millions of different plants and animals living on the planet. Over 20,000 are native to the United States!

As the characters and events began coming to life in the story of FEETSPEAK, since it was a Realistic Fiction tale, I wanted the Settings to be realistic, too.

So, I did extensive research on the several specific geographical locations in the United States where the story and its backstories take place, such as:

  • the Midwest’s wildflowers, animals, pond life, and farming community
  • the wildlife of the Blue Ridge Mountains
  • a city park & county fair’s animals

If and/or when you visit one of these areas, you will be familiar with some of their specific flora and fauna, or plants and animals.

Photos of some of these specific plants and animals play main parts in the Nature Views Activity Unit.

Ideas & Suggestions

You can, also, find decorative papers, like scrapbooking papers that may have Setting Images you want to use.

Magazines pictures can, also, give you images you want to use as backgrounds and/or include as part of your Settings.

Once you’ve grouped the Photos into Categories, you may want to put the Photos in ABC order.

As you are reading the Chapters, make notes of other plants & animals you want to add to your Nature Views Booklet.
