A student centered packet of various activities that complements the historical fiction novel "We Were Heroes: The Journal of Scott Pendleton Collins." The activities in the packet correspond with the book and help to enhance and augment what is contained in the book. The activities include work with vocabulary, primary sources, geography, and many other common core centered work. It is a great supplement to use in the social studies classroom but can also be used in English Language Arts. Great for middle school classes but can be easily adapted for high school or even upper level elementary.
