This is a 14 lesson unit to accompany Macon's Perfect Shot, a mid-grade novel written by M. Mark Miller. The novel is about the adventures of a 14 year old boy traveling to Yellowstone Park in the 1870's. While the book is fiction, it includes historically accurate events and people from Yellowstone Park history. The unit offers lessons in vocabulary, discussion questions, art projects, map skills, information on the Park, writing exercises, research possibilities in science and history, with listed websites and links to historical images, and a regional Native American lesson. The lessons are applicable to whole class or small group study, and include a key.
