We used novel From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler for our high-level 4th grade readers. We paired this award-winning novel with the informational book Turn of the Century by Ellen Jackson, a look at children’s lives though different millennium. We have also used this novel with our low-level 5th graders. The CCSS noted in this activity guide are for 4th grade.
