Excellent and thorough resource. I love the vocabulary wheels. It would be helpful to have more activities focusing on reading strategies (and less vocabulary and comprehension questions).

I just finished this unit with my 6th grade students and the comprehension questions were right on target for us. The vocabulary was needed for our understanding and my students enjoyed learning "those old timey words!" Excellent!

This great unit enhances a fun to read novel! I have modified it some to fit the needs of my students, but overall, it is excellent! Thanks so much!
