PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is an older novel that students rarely find on their own, so it is a great book to teach. Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH provides interesting discussion topics for students about society and what makes a person (animal) civilized.

The unit includes a variety of reading skills activities from which to choose but my favorite activity asks students to design a map of the setting using details from the story.

The students also complete a creative writing activity where they rewrite the epilogue of the story. The students must use events in the story to create a logical new ending.
