Essential Question: How does curiosity help you solve a problem?

LAFS.K.RL.3.9 (Florida) With prompting and support, compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories.

Diving deep into the stories "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kamkwamba and "Galimoto" by Karen Lynn Williams, students will use the "performance cycle" to comprehend and compare the texts.

The activities culminate with sharing an invention or toy created with recycled items. To create their invention/toy the students work through a series of comprehension activities comparing and contrasting the characters and text of the two stories.

The lesson plan provides large list of supplemental texts and 2 weeks worth of ELA activities. A day by day planner or a menu of mix and match activities, to fully engage your students in the text. There are key vocabulary from text with 4 pages of "sticky note" printables to place right in your book for full engagement. 8 worksheets to facilitate a draft, revision and review of their inventions as well as templates to use whole group or individual to learn about the characters and story messages. Photos of activity in use are also included for reference.
