With 46 states adopting the Common Core standards, it is easy to see why this particular study would be welcomed in your classroom. This packet is aligned with the Common Core ELA standards for grades 3 through 5.
Because the 5th grade Social Studies standards cover the topic of World War II, a The Butterfly study can be a nice addition to your Social Studies unit also.
This packet includes:
-before reading, during reading, and after reading activities
-a list of 15 vocabulary words to study
-a Frayer model to help with vocabulary study
-QR codes for students to watch a video on immigration
-questions and graphic organizers that encourage students to show their knowledge of the text and their acquisition of Common Core standards
-a story board graphic organizer to help summarize the text
-a book review template
This is a great accompaniment to the Turn of the Century unit. Check it out here
