I took a summer class a few weeks ago that discussed how to integrate the arts into our core curriculum. One of the activities that we practiced was a visualization technique, which involved listening to a story and then using that story to spark either written or visual arts (i.e. painting, drawing, etc.) expression.
The Tale of Aladdin and Bubblebee: How it All Began is a great audiobook for this type of activity. Bubblebee is a non-violent superhero who helps a genie who is stuck in his lamp. As a reward, Bubblebee receives three wishes, but instead of using these wishes on himself, he asks the genie to give him the skills needed to make the world a better place.
I would use this technique with younger students, K-1, in a classroom setting. Students can listen to The Tale of Aladdin and Bubblebee and demonstrate their understanding through art. Since it's an audiobook, I would take frequent breaks to assess understanding and help illustrate the story using puppets and/or having students act out parts of the book.
