There are so many historical figures named in the novel Bud, Not Buddy that I knew an interactive book project would complement it perfectly. This hyperlinked PDF document is designed to be used on a computer or tablet (perfect for iPads or Chromebooks!).
This document includes more than 35 links to websites, some with questions and activities designed to aid and deepen comprehension and spark critical thinking—all in line with Common Core—and some just for fun. All are embedded in this document, so your students are just click away from activities, additional research, videos, biographies, historical documents, and more. With so many enrichment links, this is ideal for early finishers.
It provides the perfect platform for doing an in-depth, cross-curricular novel study incorporating social studies and language arts. The book covers the depression, the establishment of unions, and the difficulties faced by African Americans during the 1930s. This is also a great resource for homeschoolers!
