The story is about an extraordinary seed that takes flight to grow into a Christmas tree and continue the life cycle of the Christmas trees. The story is set-up to where the type of seed is not identified until the Christmas tree is revealed.
It includes a weeks worth of close reading activities to guide students to take a deeper look at the text. The close reading activities include an initial read for enjoyment, vocabulary, comprehension questions that dive beneath the surface, a thinker question that guides students to make inferences by using the support of the text and their own knowledge to answer the question, and a writing activity that serves as an assessment tool.
