The Splat the Cat books by Rob Scotton delight children as they follow the adventures of Splat the Cat and his friends. We have so much fun reading the books that we created some activities to go along with one of our favorites: Splat and Cool School Trip.

Splat and the Cool School Trip Lessons and Activities

Join Splat the Cat on a school trip to the zoo. Splat the Cat is so excited when Mrs. Wimpydimple announces that the class will be going to the zoo. While everyone calls out his or her favorite animal—Elephant! Giraffe! Monkey!— Splat only wants to see the penguins. After all, penguins are perfect; they are black and white, just like Splat! All day long, Splat just can’t wait. But when the smallest animal makes the biggest splash and shuts down the penguin exhibit, Splat goes home disappointed and alone . . . or does he?

Questions to ask as you read Splat the Cool School Trip:

Have you ever been too excited to go to sleep?

What did you do when you could not fall asleep?

Here are some of our ideas: 

  • Listen to music. 
  • Make up a chant about the next day; repeat that chant until you get sleepy. 
  • Draw a picture and/or tell a story about what you are excited about. 

Tell about a time when you felt disappointed. What did you do? 

Do you like to go to the zoo?

What is your favorite animal?

If you could plan a field trip where would you go? Why?
