Who doesn't LOVE a Magic Tree House book??
This is a GREAT Magic Tree House book that aligns perfectly with any outer space unit. This could be used with a whole class or as part of a literature circle!
It is just 10 short chapters and can easily be read aloud in one week. I have created a worksheet for each chapter.
Each worksheet addresses both science themes, as well as important literary themes. They include basic comprehension questions AND critical thinking questions.
Included are some fun writing activities!
The following prompt lends itself perfectly to teaching writing with voice and mental imagery.
"Pretend that you have landed on the moon! Describe what you see, what you hear, and what is going around you. Be sure to use descriptive words and voice in your writing. Grab your reader’s attention with an exciting opening sentence. Be creative!"
"The View Through My Porthole" -- This fun art and literacy activity allows students to imagine that they are in outer space. They draw what they see through the porthole in their spaceship and then write about it. The porthole template included is adorable and these turn out great!
And the final writing activity: Write a sequel to Midnight on the Moon. Imagine that Jack and Annie go back to the moon and interact with the moon man. What IS he? What is he like? What kind of adventures do they have?
