Help students dive into the mysteries of Patrick Carman's Floors with this interdisciplinary literature unit. This complete novel study includes reading response questions, vocabulary, lessons on plot, figurative language, narrator styles and much more. Two creative writing assignments are also included with graphic organizers to help with planning and a rubric to help with assessment. The unit also includes bonus STEM activities related to inventions. The ScienceWiz Inventions kit is recommended to get the full benefit from the STEM portion of the unit.
This Literature Connections unit is designed to be student led. It is great for independent study, a summer reading project, or homeschooling. While the instructions are written to the student, the unit can easily be adapted for use by a teacher in the classroom, or led by a parent in a homeschool setting.
In Floors, children explore the wackiest hotel in New York City. Mystery and adventure is around every corner! Students will create a "top secret" folder to fill with character dossiers to help them track their suspicions and gather evidence as they unravel the mystery of the Whippet Hotel.
