Children’s Book Activity: Dragons Love Tacos

Children’s Book Activity: Dragons Love Tacos

We’re so excited to share our next collection of book activities! This week we had so much fun exploring Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin & Daniel Salmieri. 

We always try to use all 5 senses during a reading of a book to engage the students. Here’s what we did with Dragons Love Tacos!

5-senses-dragonsSee: We looked at different kinds of Salsa, taco shells, and this puppet from IKEA

Smell: We smelled taco seasoning, salsa, and taco shells

Taste: We tasted the dragon’s favorite taco toppings! Salsa, lettuce, tomato, and cheese.

Hear: We crunched taco shells (inside a bag) and talked about how it sounded.

Feel: We felt taco shells, salsa, and our dragon puppet
