This unit is perfect to celebrate Earth Day (or any other day!).
Just a Dream is about a boy named Walter who doesn’t care about taking care of his environment. He litters, doesn’t recycle, and doesn’t think twice about the consequences of his actions, that is until he goes to sleep and dreams about his future. Walter visits many different places in his community and in the world only to find that others didn’t care about the earth either, and now it is being polluted and its resources wasted.
Included in this unit are a week’s lesson plans and all the resources needed to teach students a variety of Common Core-aligned reading resources. Use this book as a whole group lesson or in guided reading groups. Students can complete the pages in partners, as independent seat work, or for homework.
