Boxcar Children: Mystery in Washington, D.C. Lesson Plans and Activities by Erica
Boxcar Children: The Mystery in Washington, D.C. by Gertrude Chandler Warner
Focus: Predictions, Summarizing, Character Traits, Vocabulary
Includes: Lesson Plans for 12 days, follow-up activities for the students to complete, vocabulary cards, detective activities, missing items recording sheet, and a predictions chart
This is a fabulous book to use for guided reading or even a read aloud when studying about Washington, D.C.; the Northeast Region, or US monuments and landmarks. This includes 12 days of detailed lesson plans and activities for the students to complete. Vocabulary cards for each of the ten chapters are also included so that the students can sort and define new words. Predicting is an important skill that is constantly reinforced throughout this book. I have included questions to ask the students to get them thinking about predicting. A predictions chart is included for students to record their prediction, tell the thinking behind their prediction, decide if their prediction came true, and discuss what they learned. A detective activity is also included for students to try and solve the two mysteries. As they read they record clues and try to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together in order to solve the mysteries. There is also a recording sheet for the students to record each item that goes missing, whether or not it was found, and how it was found. As the students read I have them pick a character and create a character chart or graphic organizer in a journal or notebook. They record what the character sees, hears, does, feels, etc. in order to better understand and connect with the characters.
