Product Description
In correspondance with the novel "The Things They Carried" by Tim O'Brien, I had my students create a care package for the soldiers. This activity could be done in 2 ways - I have done both. One semester I had my students physically create a care package. They had to gather the items that they will put in the package, based on what the characters in the novel needed and liked. This semester, we didn't have time for a project, so it was more of a writing assignment.

Of course to keep this aligned with the Common Core students have to defend their item choices with their own explanation, as well as evidence from the novel.
