PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Zip File contains many activities, quizzes, vocabulary activities and handouts that correspond with Jim Murphy's "The Great Fire". I have taught this unit many times and even took my students on a trolley tour of Chicago after we read the novel :) Very successful unit! Some activities include: The Index Game, Eye-Witness Accounts, Before/After Pictures of the Chicago Fire, Timeline Creation, Headline Activity etc. Plenty of activities to keep your students interested and engaged.

If you purchase the files, I can scan you student samples of the various activities--this always helps to show your students.

I was so excited to see that someone had already created some activities for The Great Fire by Jim Murphy, however, it proved to be more work than it was worth. I had to go through each chapter and figure out what activity went with what and then had to edit some so they made sense. I tried to contact the seller, but after 5 days still haven't heard anything.

I just purchased your unit today! It is so well put together. Do you have a time line or a unit plan that outlines which items you used as you progressed through the book?

On  August 14, 2013Ms Tambo answered:
I am glad that you are enjoying this unit! I had a lot of fun creating all of these activities and overall, it was a great unit. I cannot find my actual Unit Plan for this unit, but I am happy to write something that kind of shows how I progressed through this unit. I also have some student samples if you'd like. Please send me your email and I can send that information on over!

Greetings,

I purchased your package today and all of the files opened and saved fine except the "before and after picture" file. My computer screen said, "Windows cannot complete the extraction. The destination file could not be created." Could you possibly send me the "before and after picture" file or the link to the picture file? You mentioned in your overview that you have student examples that you can share. It would be very helpful if you can share some of your examples. Thank you.

N. vavrek You can email me at vavrekn@sparksd.org

Howdy: I am excited about getting your Great Fire package today! I am working with preservice teachers in a lit/tech course this semester, and am using the book as a model for how they can build their understanding of using nonfiction to meet CCS objectives. You mentioned in your overview that you could share examples of student work...that would be invaluable to me, if that were possible. If so, you can reach me at gradel@fredonia.edu . Many many thanks! Kathleen Gradel

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help!
Ms. Tambo

P.S. If you are satisfied with your purchase and the materials I've created, I would love it if you left some feedback for other teachers to see!
