You can purchase The Sandwich Swap HERE.
Description from Amazon: Lily and Salma are best friends. They like doing all the same things, and they always eat lunch together. Lily eats peanut butter and Salma eats hummus-but what's that between friends? It turns out, a lot. Before they know it, a food fight breaks out. Can Lily and Salma put aside their differences? Or will a sandwich come between them? The smallest things can pull us apart-until we learn that friendship is far more powerful than difference. In a glorious three-page gatefold at the end of the book, Salma, Lily, and all their classmates come together in the true spirit of tolerance and acceptance.
I haven't used this lesson yet but plan to download it and use it to go along with The Sandwich Swap. I love that you create PB&J friendwiches while learning about important friendship traits and that yucky toppings (gets jealous bacon, has a bad attitude lettuce, gives put downs onion, etc...) ruin the sandwich. You can get it for $4.80 on TPT and it is 67 pages long, including a game and a bulletin board idea!
You could also download the FREE PRINTABLE SANDWICH from http://kidsactivitiesblog.com and have students write friendship traits on each piece of the sandwich.
This Friendship Venn Diagram with questions would be a great tool for talking about diversity among classmates:
Here is another Friendship Venn Diagram:
There is a fun activity in this Free TPT product: Book It: Retell It, Write It, Make It!. Students can work together to see how many words they can make out of "sandwich swap".
This would be a good worksheet to hand out prior to reading the story. Students could fill it out as the story is read:
