I have put all the novel units I created and used during a 4-week small group mystery unit. Each group worked together to read and complete the activities. I met with 1 or 2 groups each day to facilitate and answer general questions, but the activities included are self-directed and students LOVED discussing and completing them.
Each unit includes character/setting/plot/theme activities as well as several reading strategy activities such as, inferring, asking questions, making connections, and sequencing.
Novels included in this bundle:
Chasing Vermeer by Blue Balliett
Nightmare Mountain by Peg Kehret
Theodore Boone Kid Lawyer by John Grisham
Who Stole the Wizard of OZ by Avi
I hope your students enjoy the books and activities!
