Are you struggling to find a way to teach common core standard RI 4.7 during guided reading in fourth grade? I sure was!
This great 3 day unit covers how to interpret information presented visually, orally, or quantitatively and explain how the information contributes to an understanding of the text in which it appears.
Using the tall tale text Johnny Appleseed and the 1950's Disney Johnny Appleseed video, students will learn how to interpret the information and compare the different forms.
Three days of lesson plans and a comparing and contrasting worksheet style assignment are included.
The text is not included due to copyright. The suggested text to use is Tall Tale's by Mary Pope Osborne. The link to the video is included. The video is on YouTube but I also included a Safe Share link that is usually a site that is not blocked by districts.
