The Day the Crayons Quit is an unusual, and very funny story, told through
a series of letters between a young boy and his crayons. This module invites
readers to see the world of coloring in an entirely new manner. Students
will step into character as the various crayons from the story, investigate
the big ideas that put the Crayola company on the map, and play with color,
all while learning about story structure.
