This unit is meant to be used with the book Who Was Milton Hershey? By James Buckley Jr.. It is part of a series of books published by Grosset & Dunlap, a division of Penguin Group Inc. The Scholastic book order club often has these books and that is a great way to get free books using your bonus points.
The students love these books as they are simple but filled with tons of information and fascinating facts about different people in past history and current. We will be writing more activity guides for other books in this series so please follow us to be updated on when these units become available.
We purchase enough copies so students are paired with literacy partners and can read the chapters and work on the activity pages together. This unit can be used in a guided reading group or as an independent reading project.
This unit includes:
comprehension questions for each chapter (and answer sheets
student cover sheet
then and now comparison
recording steps in a process
designing a candy wrapper
operation little vittles
Common Core Standards
Teachers can decide to use the main idea/detail paper for several chapters as you please since this activity is open ended.
Please let us know if there is a particular book you would like to see done with activities.
