This novel study is a great way to combine Science, Social Studies and Language Arts! Fatty Legs is a beautiful chapter book that is filled with figurative language, strong characters, and historically accurate information about Residential Schools. This read aloud is perfect for Orange Shirt Day, or any other time of the year that you want to teach students about the impact that Residential Schools had on real people.

What is Included?

· Graphic Organizers / Reading Response Pages that can be made into a booklet for student reading responses

· Interactive read aloud prompts for each chapter. (Prompts include structures such as: Turn and Talk, Stop and Jot, Think Aloud, Act it Out, etc.)

· Ideas for activities for Before, During and After reading

· Interactive Word Wall Cards

· Figurative Language Analysis

· Stop and Jot Notebook pages

· A STEM Challenge

· A Social Studies Reflection Activity about Residential Schools

· A Fun Name Activity

This unit works fabulously with a Reading Workshop framework or simply as a way to introduce Canadian Residential Schools to upper elementary students.

Please Note: This product does NOT contain the actual Fatty Legs book! You can find the novel at your local library or on amazon.
