Suzanne Buras created this Number the Stars Novel Study for her 4th and 5th gifted grade students. This historical fiction novel by Lois Lowry is an all-time favorite, is a Newbery winner, and is loaded with great content and style.
Set in Nazi occupied Denmark, the novel looks at the era with sensitivity. The packet contains ideas for vocabulary, comprehension, writing, research, and critical thinking. There is an emphasis on the types of writing (exposition, narration, dialogue, persuasive, etc.) and story elements.There are two posters included on Types of Writing and Story Elements. The packet also includes a number of original Number the Stars related clip art. It covers a large spectrum of ELA CCSS standards in reading and writing. I hope you will enjoy the unit! For more clip art choice, there is a matching Clip Art packet.
