Instructions: Read the poem below. Look at the lesson picture.

What do you see in the picture? What is the little boy doing? What is the little boy holding? What is the boy resting behind? Who is coming to talk to the little boy? Do you think the lady is happy or unhappy?

Use scissors, glue, paper, and crayons to cut out, color, and glue shapes to create your own Little Boy Blue collage scene. You might wish to include the boy, the haystack, cows, sheep, corn, the meadow, the grass, the sky, clouds, the house, and/or the trees.

Little Boy Blue

Come blow your horn!

The sheep's in the meadow

The cow's in the corn.

Where is the boy that looks after the sheep?

He's under the haystack, fast asleep.
