PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a novel unit plan and guided reading packet for the novel, A Long Walk to Water. Included in this plan:

Questioning is aligned to Common Core Standards. I used this as an independent reading novel for my special education eighth grade students but this book is appropriate for upper elementary to middle school students.

Summary: A Long Walk to Water begins as two stories, told in alternating sections, about a girl in Sudan in 2008 and a boy in Sudan in 1985. The girl, Nya, is fetching water from a pond that is two hours’ walk from her home: she makes two trips to the pond every day. The boy, Salva, becomes one of the "lost boys" of Sudan, refugees who cover the African continent on foot as they search for their families and for a safe place to stay. Enduring every hardship from loneliness to attack by armed rebels to contact with killer lions and crocodiles, Salva is a survivor, and his story goes on to intersect with Nya’s in an astonishing and moving way.
