This is a response notebook type packet containing questions and activities to accompany Civil War on Sunday, book 21, in the Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne. The notebook / packet can be used to teach throughout the Civil War on Sunday book study. I personally use mine with my social studies classes.
Pages included are as follows:
-Similar cover sheet with a name space suitable for a student notebook / packet cover should the purchaser so choose
-Question Sheets covering each chapter (3 questions per chapter; 2 chapters per sheet)
-Civil War Extension Research Sheet
-Clara Barton Extension Research Sheet
-Meet Jack and Annie Sheet (grammar)
-Headline News Sheet where students can use their imaginations and creativity to pretend they are newspaper reporters writing about Jack and Annie’s travels during the Civil War.
-Clara Barton Sheet where students can pretend they are Clara Barton, use their imaginations and creativity, and write about a day in the life of Clara Barton during the Civil War.
-Story Elements Sheet for students to record the characters, setting, problem, key events, solution, and theme of the story
-Finger Feedback! Here students can rate the book and explain their thoughts about it by rating it anywhere from 1 – 5 fingers and then explaining the reasoning behind their choice.

*The answer keys are included as guides, but of course class discussions could provide additional answers. :o)
I have tagged this as compatible with certain ELA Common Core State Standards for 2nd and 3rd grades, but readers of other elementary grades would enjoy this book also. :o)
I included the extension sheets (Civil War and Clara Barton) as extra research and information seeking opportunities for students. My students love any reason to find things in library books and on the computer! :o)
I hope you enjoy the packet and it will be helpful to you and your students!
Good for one classroom use only. Please respect my work and do not distribute unless additional licenses are purchased. :o)
