PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Joshua's Song, by Joan Hiatt Harlow, is the story of a Boston boy in 1919 forced to become a newsie after his father dies from the influenza epidemic. This is a great novel to tie in to studies of the northeast region, child labor laws, or the early 1900's.

Immigration BUNDLE is also available by clicking here!

This packet includes questions to go with the book, "Joshua's Song," by Joan Hiatt Harlow. My kids love this book and it is definitely one of my favorite fictional books to teach during immigration studies.

I also included primary source photographs from the Library of Congress in this packet for kids to analyze. This gives kids a first-hand look at what life was really like during the early 1900s, specifically the tough life a young boy growing up as a Newsie. The book touches on what life was life in the early 1900's in Boston, while focusing in on the influenza outbreak, child labor, early newspapers, and immigration, among other topics.

The questions in this packet are both short answer and multiple choice. I tried to make most of the questions as much like the State Test as possible, as to prepare the kiddos without cramming for the test.

I sometimes use this packet as a read aloud supplement and other times, use this within small group guided reading and lit. circles.

Thanks for looking!
