Travel back into the time of knights and castles with Jack and Annie in this exciting Common Core based reading unit for the novel, The Knight at Dawn. This novel unit integrates the Common Core principles of higher order thinking questions and pairing texts with Aliki's A Medieval Feast in a way that engages your students.
This reading unit contains:
* Common Core based higher level thinking questions for each chapter. These questions are similar to close read questions and promote analysis of text rather than just recall. Questions require evidence and details from the story to allow students to practice citing text, an essential Common Core skill.
* Vocabulary activities- 10 vocabulary words with student-friendly definitions, vocabulary activities (that can be used as a center or HW packet), and a vocabulary quiz
* Integration activities for Aliki's A Medieval Feast: Explanation of paired text, lesson suggestions, comprehension questions to help students recall details, and writing activity using both books to describe a medieval feast from the point of view of Jack or Annie.
