PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This unit was created to serve as a science-based, literature-rich unit for first grade students. Though this was designed with first graders in mind, it is easily adaptable to second and third grade students, who will be able to work more independently on the same projects.

The book: Diary of a Worm, a fictional story by Doreen Cronin, serves as a jumping off point for this unit, which also includes a variety of nonfiction books.

Compare and contrast fictional and non-fictional stories using a Venn Diagram, Worm's Red Cap a story sequence activity, Wormy comprehension cards, comprehension questions for Diary of a Worm, Fact VS. Fiction T-Chart graphic organizer for use with Diary of a Worm to separate fact from fiction, Thinking map Worm Circle Map, Thinking map Worm Brace Map, Thinking map Worm Tree Map, Worm themed writing paper.
