This PBA and activity guide is meant to accompany:
Balderdash! John Newbery and the Boisterous Birth of Children's Books
by Michelle Markel
illustrated by Nancy Carpenter
This text is a great book to read with K-6 though the extension activities are best used with 4th - 6th grade. I have included 3rd grade because this makes for a great extension activity for high achieving learners at this level.
Your download will include:
A Vocabulary Task
Two essay assessments utilizing Focus Correction Areas (http://collinsed.com/approach/focus-correction-areas/)
Project-Based Assessments available as a menu, list, and single option
All activities can be completed with a partner or group but to not specify which in order to allow for independent completion.
As a bonus there is a coloring image on the back of the bingo board as well. Enjoy and please email me at katelyn (at) circulatingknowledge (dot) com with comments, questions, or a desire for personalization!
