This is an interactive unit that goes along with the book Mr. Popper's Penguins. I will be using this book as a read aloud with my first grade students but it could easily be used in a small group or literature circle type setting. Included in this unit are comprehension questions for each chapter, two comprehension tests (with keys), a opinion writing assignment with a prewriting activity, science and social studies connections as well as a few non-fiction close reads. There is also an inferencing activity, a letter writing activity and a place for the students to create their own advertisement. This unit would also go along with my penguin word of the day which focuses on the story vocabulary and my penguin facts nonfiction writing project.
