PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These end of the year activities and unit for middle school students is the perfect way to keep those last few weeks of school highly engaging, fun, AND academic. Great for grades 6-11 (you can adjust depending on the rigor you need for your students).


Hemingway's short story, "The End of Something," is a great story to use as a final unit at the end of the school year. In this unit and through these activities, students are encouraged to reflect on the feelings they experience when something comes to an end and use these observations to analyze the characters in the story, as well as write their own short story / personal narrative (which can be part of a class anthology if desired). In addition to multiple activities and the personal narrative portion of the unit, we have also included a thought-provoking final essay question AND graphic organizers to help bring the unit full circle for you.


We have included multiple resources for you to not only teach this unit, but engage students, AND have them complete a personal narrative!
