Splat! is a humorous story about 65 fourth graders from Eli Terry School in South Windsor, Connecticut as they enjoy a special day together. While focused on learning about life in 1966, the kids dig up a time capsule on the school grounds and discuss the contents. What follows is a fun-filled day where the kids combine learning with all sorts of enjoyable activities, such as field day, a barbecue lunch, decorating a cake, a game of jeopardy, and a zany egg toss. Chock full of humor designed to make any fourth grader laugh, this book easily combines fun with learning in an effort to encourage reading among those boys and girls between the ages of 8-12.
