March 13 and 14th, 2017 David R Shapiro returned to Corbett Grade School to present the Terra Tempo materials to students in the K-5 classes. This year, students at Corbett Grade School will be studying the Missoula Floods, so, having David speak was a natural fit.
The presentation highlights the science and art of Terra Tempo: Ice Age Cataclysm in a 45 minute slide show. There is time at the end for Q and A as well as book and autograph signing. David is able to change the presentation to be applicable for students of various ages.
Corbett school hosted David as well as Erica Melville and Christopher Herndon back in 2010. Corbett was the first school to host the Terra Tempo team. Seven years and two Terra Tempo books later, David was excited to return to a new batch of students.
What is truly amazing is that the younger students were not yet born when David started to write Terra Tempo but they were still filled with enthusiasm for the book. This means that Terra Tempo is surely a timeless classic and is not bound by what is "in" at the moment.
David can be booked for presentations through this website or contacted at David@craigmorecreations.com
The thank you notes!
Students from the Lent School of Portland Oregon sent thank you notes to David R Shapiro for his presentation and gift of Terra Tempo books to the 3rd and 4th grade students.
David gifted close to 90 books for the school to use. Terra Tempo 1, 2, and 3 can now be integrated into their learning curriculum.
Chris and David are at the APPL 2016 in booth 532 giving away Craigmore Creations books!
Booth 106. Bring Natural History into your classroom with fun, illustrated books! Align to Common Core and engage students. Come say hello today and tomorrow is Sacramento.
Chris and I have been spending some time down at the Federal Courthouse here in Portland. The larger drama that unfolded from the January occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is now a series of court cases.
Chris and I are drawn to this case because the underlying themes affect public lands policies.
We aim to make a graphic novel out of this drama. Though to be truthful we know that we do not know enough to do it on our own. There are certain members of the press that we would like to collaborate with on the research and development and the writing when that time comes.
Our intention with this story is to be fair to the facts and to see as much as we can with our own eyes. A case like this is prone to hyperbole and exaggeration and we are not wanting to go down that road. If you are interested please follow along as the story develops.
We are getting excited about this years ALA in San Francisco! David R. Shapiro and Christopher Herndon will be having fun and working hard to promote Craigmore Creations books to the wide world of librarians and libraries.
