CRITICAL THINKING: Story Sleuths Literature Bundle (Caldecott books)
Story Sleuths I, II, and III Bundle
delivers 3 products at a money saving price. You will receive 12 weeks of clues for the Story Sleuth
challenge; an enrichment unit using Caldecott Award winning books to cultivate critical thinking.
I designed this unit to use as school-wide enrichment for 1st – 3rd grades. It was instantly so popular that kindergarten and 4th grade classes begged to be included. This unit could easily be conducted by the art teacher, as artistic media is an important component. Alternatively, the librarian could conduct the project in conjunction with a study of Caldecott Award books. Classroom teachers can easily adapt the unit to use within their classroom or between other classes at their grade level.
Begin by collecting the specified books and reading them aloud to the participating classes. Provide copies of the book icons (included) for participating classes, encouraging the teachers to display them. The icons will provide important evidence as the students work together to determine which book is described. Give a copy of the week’s clues to the participants. They are to work together, engaging in collaborative conversations as described in the CCSS. As a group, they should submit one answer to the project administrator. At the end of the week, the groups that guessed correctly will receive a certificate (included) and many kudos from the entire school.
This project is wildly popular in my school. I'll bet it will be in your school, too.
