PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This reading guide is to be used with the book, The Matchlock Gun. This is historical fiction that relates to colonial life and the French & Indian War. The vocabulary is challenging, but it is a short book. I have used it with advanced 3rd graders, but would imagine it is more generally apporpriate for grades 4-5. It's a great book!

This was a good resource. The essay made the student think.

You were very thorough in covering vocabulary, comprehension, and writing across the curriculum! It has been almost impossible to find unit studies on this book! Thank-you so much for putting this together and putting it out there!
On  November 5, 2011Heather DeBuse answered:
I know! That's why I made the unit. I used this unit with my advanced 3rd grades during a s.s. unit on colonial life. Even though it's a short book, it's pretty diffult and has a great deal of mature content! If you ever need anything, don't hesitate to reach out. I'd be happy to collobarate with you!

Thanks,
Heather DeBuse

Dose this include chapter comprehension questions?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 18, 2010Heather DeBuse answered:
Yep, it sure does! The book is divided into reading sections. Each section has vocabulary, meaningful sentences, comprehension questions (on all levels; recall-application) and "beyond the text" writing activities.
