Best Peter Rabbit Activities for Classroom and Learning
I’ve loved the Peter Rabbit story since I was a kid and I first read The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
I still have that tiny Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter picture book (now falling apart) from my childhood.
(Of course, I think I called him Peter Cottontail. They are the same, aren’t they???)
It’s one of the earliest books that I remember reading and loving and then doing all sorts of fun Peter Rabbit activities and imaginary play.
So, you can imagine my — ahem, hesitancy — when I first heard that they were doing a Peter Rabbit movie (and now a Peter Rabbit 2 movie!).
I mean, how could they possibly improve upon that beloved little rabbit in the blue coat?
Before we get to the activities for teaching Peter Rabbit, let’s talk about the Peter Rabbit movies in case you want to include those in your learning projects.
