I designed this non-fiction unit for use in my 2nd grade classroom. It includes vocabulary building, characterization, fact & opinion, cause and effect, 3 quizzes, and 3 project ideas for use with this novel.
While created with 2nd grade standards in mind, this unit could easily be adapted for 1st or early 3rd grade reading use. I have also used this novel with struggling readers when I taught 5th grade. I use this novel during whole-group reading but the activities could also be easily completed within a small reading group.
