Tuesday is a whimsical tale of high-flying frogs on a moonlit adventure. The rich illustrations set the stage for a visual art study in surrealism and the night, and a dramatic investigation of faces and flight. This module invites students to entertain daydreams, see familiar things in a whole new way, and make connections among the unrelated.
