This digital novel study can be used with Google Drive or Google Classroom. It is perfect for distance learning and going paperless! Perfect for Grade 4 and 5 classes.

This engaging Read Aloud unit is a great way to combine Social Studies and Language Arts! Students will practice key reading concepts such as making inferences, understanding vocabulary, analyzing author’s craft, making connections, predicting, visualizing, determining theme, etc. Some prompts also highlight the specific historical context of this historical fiction book. Students will learn more about life as a pioneer, the Sioux people and the Children’s Blizzard.

After reading the book, there is a Social Studies extension project for students to complete. Students are asked to keep a diary of their life during the Covid 19 pandemic. Their notes could one day be turned into the next I Survived book!

Note: The Book "I Survived the Children's Blizzard" is NOT included in your purchase. It is however available on EPIC books as a read aloud!

What is Included?

• Activities for Before, During and After reading

This lesson works fabulously with a Reading Workshop framework or simply as a way to make some Social Studies cross curricular connections.
