For Gloria Whelan's historical fiction account of the forced movement of the Potawatomi tribe in Michigan, here is a full unit for a class or group study. Its subject matter and topic keep students' interest. It makes a great read-aloud as it is only seven (7) chapters long. Included are -
- Reading Comprehension questions for Ch. 1 thru 6, one page each,
- a sequence/summary lesson for Ch. 7 which also has stationery and directions for students to use as they respond,
- task cards with Discussion/Writing prompts that give students a chance to do some deeper thinking,
- a quiz for Ch. 1, 2, 3, (one page) and another for Ch. 4, 5, 6, 7 (two pages),
- word study pages are included with the same breakdown as the quizzes.
All answers are included.
