This three-day lesson plan includes the full 9-page story with attractive illustrations, an 8-question deep-thinking exercise (with detailed answer key/class discussion starters), a simile hunt worksheet (also with answer key), and an optional writing/creative activity where students can choose from a menu of four options as they dig deeper into their understanding of the text. This zipped package also includes an mp3 audio file.
This lesson is best for advanced middle school or high school students.
