In the book, “Little House in the Big Woods,” by Laura Ingalls Wilder, the Ingalls family lives in a time period and in a place that most children are not familiar with. As each chapter introduces a new location, it becomes difficult for many students to decipher the challenges and joys that the Ingalls family faced. By making a landscape map it will greatly help students explore the places where the Ingalls’s spent their time. Each place on the map is represented by a visual aid presented the in the novel. To strengthen students understanding of the novel, a set of comprehension cards broken into 4 categories is attached. The categories are food, landscape, jobs and family fun. As well as, a set of picture vocabulary cards and definition sheet that supports each category.
***Bonus: An extension activity for students to create their own landscape map.
-Chapter 1-13 picture vocabulary cards with definition sheet from the four categories (food, landscape, jobs and family fun).
-Comprehension question cards that can Velcro directly onto your laminated landscape map.
-Extension #1: Students can design their own landscape map using student sheet attached.
