PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Add Educational Creativity to your ReadyGen program!

These activity sheets were designed to compliment your ReadyGen curriculum and each is aligned to the Common Core Standards. They are to be used in conjunction with the book HIAWATHA written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and illustrated by Susan Jeffers. The activities reinforce the objectives of the ReadyGen lessons and present an opportunity for academic rigor, creativity, and fun.

Included:
Activity 1 : "Setting" - Students use text based evidence to identify and illustrate contrasting settings from the poem
Activity 2 : "Cultures Around the World" - Students grasp the concept of culture by learning about prominent countries around the world, and get to activate prior knowledge about the American culture.
Activity 3 : "The Culture of ..." Students do a brief research project to identify key aspects of a culture of their choice.
Activity 4: "Personification in Poetry" - Students recognize the use of personification in "Hiawatha" and read to identify this device in other well known poems by prominent poets.
Activity 5: "Heroic Hiawatha" - Students use text based evidence to infer character traits about Hiawatha
Activity 6: "Hiawatha Crossword" - Students get to test their "Hiawatha" vocabulary knowledge by completing a crossword puzzle.
Activity 7: "Create a Myth" - Students view examples of myths told by Nokomis to Hiawatha, and then get to brainstorm and illustrate a couple of their own.

*** Activity 2 and 3 were included as the ReadyGen Unit mentions "culture" continually, but does very little to ensure that the students grasp the concept.

These activities are perfect for center work....they lend themselves to interesting group work and discussion...they can be used as independent work after the lesson or as a form of differentiation with the ReadyGen activities.... they make beautiful homework assignments....the possibilities are endless!

**Also included is a sheet that lists the exact standard that each activity is aligned to.
