I am blown away by what you have created here. We created this same lesson over the summer pairing these two books and have been scrambling for support. You have made me a happy dept. chair tonight! I'll definitely be back to see what
you're up to next.
As a homeschool mom, this is a wonderful resource for teaching Literature to my 3 children ages 6-10. I wanted to include a non-fiction book in our curriculum and this is perfect. The book and some of the activities may be easier for middle-school age, but my children are all reading beyond their grade-levels and the worksheets/activities are easily adaptable to different ages. This is just the kind of resource I have been looking for! Thank you!
