This 100+ page Magic Tree House unit is for Book #54 Balto of the Blue Dawn. While perfect for small group guided reading, it has also been used in a whole group setting for a read aloud or as a packet for independent students to work on at their own pace.
NO PREP, low prep, and minor prep options are included. Suggested use pages to guide your instruction are also included at the beginning of each category.
There is a deeply discounted bundle of books #51-55 here.
