I have created 5 worksheets based on the wonderful book, Freedom Summer. All 5 worksheets are linked directly to 5th grade common core standards CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.1, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.2, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.3, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.4, and ELA-Literacy.RL.5.6. Each worksheet lists the CCSS at the bottom of the page. Students will answer comprehension questions using inference and must provide evidence from the text. They will identify the meanings of phrases such as similes and metaphors used in the story, determine the theme, give a summary, finding the point of view, and compare and contrast both characters giving details from the text.
