This inferencing unit is for the book Dandelions by Eve Bunting. This is a great book to use for integrating Westward Expansion, but even if you do not teach Westward Expansion, you will still love this sweet book. This is packed full of lesson ideas for teaching inferences and character analysis.
This unit includes:
*Guided Reading Questions
*A Comprehension Quiz
*Writing Prompts for Reader's Response
*A Practice Sheet on Figurative Language
*A Practice Sheet on Parts of Speech
You will find that this is a great resource for teaching your students to make inferences and back it up with evidence from the text.
