Product Description

This bundle includes both units developed for Escargot by Dashka Slater (a 2018-2019 SSYRA Junior title).

The story is magnifique as is the main character of a beautiful French snail, Escargot, who shares his opinions as to why he should by the reader’s favorite animal. The learning activities for this story focus on a combination of ELA and library information skills for primary students. All of the activities specifically target various Florida Library Skills/Information Literacy Standards (based on Common Core ELA). Additionally, there are some optional technology activities that offer another way for your students to respond to the story.

The activities in this unit can be used with whole group instruction, or as centers. Of course, since MakerSpace is a big part of my media program, I had to include activities for that as well. You can pick and choose from any of the activities, or use them as outlined in the included lesson plan. There are lots of choices for you to work with in order to best meet the needs of your students.

Whole Group
