Ms. Frizzle's class is TOO HOT to HANDLE in this volcano thriller. My advanced first graders LOVED this book, which tied in nicely with our whole group rock lessons.
This unit is perfect for a book club / guided reading group, literature circle or even whole group lessons.
At your fingertips - 3 vocabulary words to preview, multiple choice, true/false and open ended comprehension questions AND an activity for EACH of the 9 chapters.
The activities include making personal connections, a KWL chart, prediction, visualizing, poem writing and labeling.
Students will be reading for meaning and interacting with the text in a variety of ways. The comprehension checks and activities are great discussion starters!
A culminating crossword puzzle allows students to apply the story vocabulary in context. Answer key included for comprehension checks.
