Share with students Judi and Ron Barrett's book Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Invite students to think about living in a place where food falls from the sky. Ask What would be good about living in such a place? What might not be so good? Record student responses in a list on an easel pad. Let each student draw a picture to illustrate his/her response. Then help students copy their responses from the list to the bottom of their picture pages.
