My kids LOVED this unit! We had so much fun reading Marc Brown's Arthur stories.
I created this unit with a mixture of activities and stories. Please view the preview to see them all.
2 nonfiction passages with questions (One about Marc Brown and one about Aardvarks... which they LOVED!)
Arthur's Pet Business discussion questions and business card activity
Character Traits cut and paste activity
Double Bubble Thinking Map to compare and contrast 2 stories plus a blank thinking map
Arthur's Valentine Text to Self Connections worksheet (We did this together as I read the story to them for a second time... I would read the prompt and then give them time to write.)
Arthur Meets The President discussion questions and writing prompt (I used the writing prompt as a contest... just like in the story! They loved it AND it was some of their best writing!)
