PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a wonderful book on so many levels. Beautifully illustrated and written, the book is peppered with many of her famous quotes.

Eleanor was quiet, withdrawn, and suffered from low self-esteem. Yet, she became a great woman and advocate for those less fortunate. After the death of her husband she continued to be an advocate for change. Racism, child labor, gender equality, and mental illness among war veterans were issues that she faced and attempted to improve.

About This Product

These activities can be used for individual, small group, for whole class. They could also be used as homework, with guided groups, or with book groups. Small groups could be working on different activities at the same time. The book can be read aloud and selected activities done in class. They could be useful laminated and in a literacy center. It is always a better learning experience if books are discussed in pairs or in groups, in my opinion. Pairs or groups of students can also complete more complex activities. This product contains activities of various levels.

Students can travel around the classroom to 3 or 4 stations answering questions about the book. The questions can be glued to butcher paper. Each station should have enough squares for all of the class to record their answer. The questions or activities can be posted on the paper or on the wall. Students must support their answers with proof from the book.
