This is a complete historical fiction unit for 5-7th grades based on the Great Depression time period. It includes a list of books with lexile levels and male/female protagonists, weekly work bundles (4x), extension projects, a mid-unit 3 day break with centers, CCSS standard alignments, and rubrics. Weekly bundles cover static and dynamic characters, point of view, climax, conflict, character traits, and include one book talk per week. Extension projects include options for multiple intelligences and incorporate technology. 3 day break centers include creating an infographic, word clouds, watercolor paintings, and photo analysis. All documents can be edited. Final essay assessment with rubric. *Note: We also take a field trip to the Norman Rockwell Museum, and prior to beginning this unit, we do a grade level intro by watching a documentary on the Great Depression and an episode of the Waltons - students then fill out a t-chart and have a discussion through a Socratic circle.
