Included, you will receive:
➔ Vocabulary terms: Arabic terms that are unfamiliar to students and important vocabulary to know
➔ Vocabulary word cards: Great for lower level and ELL/ESL students. Words cards feature four important terms from the story, its definition and a picture to help students visualize the term.
➔ Worksheet for the reading of My Great-Grandmother's Gourd: will review the setting of the story, conflict, figurative language, and theme.
➔ Paired text worksheet to use after reading both the picture book and A Long Walk to Water. Students will analyze the conflicts and character traits in both texts and come up with a common theme that could relate to the two stories.

This lesson was designed and used in my grade 6 and 8 small group and inclusion English language arts classes.

***************************************************************************
⇢ In addition to the bundle above, I have two unit plans for A Long Walk to Water. One was used with grade level students and the other was used with lower level students. Units can be used in tandem as they follow a similar format but have different borders so that the teacher can visually tell the difference between the two units. ⇠
