This is an amazing unit that is set up to cover the entire book. It is completely interactive and allows the children to create something new each day. I have it laid out to take 16 days if you end with the movie. It is built on the idea that you will spend about 1 hour on reading each day. I like to read 2 chapters each class session and then complete an activity(s) on those chapters. It is aligned to common core standards for grade 3 and 4. Could easily be used with a lower 5th grade group.
