Firestorm is a wonderful story written by Joan Hiatt Harlow. The novel is about the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. My 5th grade students absolutely loved this book. They could not put it down.
The Firestorm Novel Study is designed to focus on how the characters evolve throughout the text. It includes a vocabulary, setting/plot worksheets, short answer questions, group discussion topics, reflection worksheet, and an extension activity. In addition, it works great for teacher lead or student lead literature circles.
