I wanted to create a unit that would work for me and my students while we read this wonderful book. This unit focuses on every two chapters. I have incorporated a lot of common core in this unit. This unit includes:
An introduction activity
3 different vocabulary activities
A quiz for every two chapters (they have 5-8 questions on them)
At least one activity per every two chapters ( these include comparing, describing, a lot of research, and writing paragraphs) Some chapters there are a couple activities to choose from.
Theme of book
Text to self, world, text
Write a letter to your family
My students love this unit and I usually end it with the movie. When I created this unit I wanted to have some choice. I like to switch things up and sometimes there is a time issue therefore I created activities and quizzes that do not take a lot of time. With common core research and writing are becoming a big part so I wanted that to be included also.
