Product Description
CRITICAL THINKING: Story Sleuths III Literature (Caldecott Books)

Enjoy 4 more weeks of critical thinking and reading Caldecott award winning books with Story Sleuths III. This project is designed to be conducted as whole school enrichment by an enrichment specialist, literacy coach, librarian, or art teacher. However, it can easily be adapted to single classroom use, especially as a challenge for your gifted students.

Here's how it works:
• After you read the specified set of 6 Caldecott books to your class, give your young detectives a set of clues that describe 1 of the books.
• Students have 1 week to solve the clues and submit their guess.
• Certificates are provided for the winning classes or teams.
• The next week brings a new set of clues on the same set of books. Play continues in this way for 4 weeks.

Many levels of Bloom's Taxonomy are employed in this unit. Students will also enjoy great literature, learn about artistic media, and participate in collaborative thinking. Moreover, it is CCSS aligned.

There are more Story Sleuths units:
Story Sleuths I
Story Sleuths II
Story Sleuths Bundle
