Duck! Rabbit! Is about a conversation between two people who had two different points of view and giving examples of why they thought it was a Duck or a Rabbit.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
Duck! Rabbit! The teacher could have the students look at images and explain what they see in the picture, this engages the student’s imagination in what they think they see.
Reading Level & Leveling System:
Pre-K to Second
I would rate this book a 5 because its so simple but has two very different points of view and at the end they realize it could be either or depending on how you look at the image.
Duck! Rabbit! is a fun book for young readers that uses visual illusions to debate whether the images are a duck or a rabbit. Students have so much fun having conversations about which image they see! An extension activity could be to create a T chart with rabbit on one side and duck on the other side and have students list the reasons why the author sees what he does.
Guided Reading level: J
This is a very simple picture book that shows two different perspectives of one thing. One side is arguing that there is a duck and the other side is saying it is a rabbit. The book continues through describing different reasons that the picture is either a duck or a rabbit.
This book introduces the different perspectives that people have. There are several other pictures that could be different things depending on your own perspective. I would show the class different examples and have them debate on what they think it is. Class discussion would be the main part of this activity.
