I designed this literature unit for use in my 2nd grade classroom. It includes vocabulary building, characterization, compare & contrast, making predictions, writing activities, 5 quizzes, and a project idea to use with this novel.
While created with 2nd grade standards in mind, this unit could easily be adapted for 3rd grade reading use. I use this novel during whole-group reading but the activities could also be easily completed within a small reading group. This item is Commom-Core aligned.
