*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 (Titanic and Morse Code) as extra research and information seeking opportunities for students. My students love any reason possible 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)
