For Educators

There’s No Ham in Hamburgers is stuffed full of curriculum tie-ins. To find out all the ways it can be used in the classroom, check out these guides.

Educator’s Guide Grades 3-5

Educator’s Guide Grades 6-8

 

Those curriculum tie-ins also make for fun, engaging, and educational author presentations. I’m scheduling author visits for the 2021-2022 school year now.
