This unit goes along with book three in the series by Kristin Earhart. Included in this unit are discussion questions for each chapter, a research guide for animals/topics mentioned in the book, two pages of a vocabulary chart using context clues, a problem and solution chart, and character traits chart. This unit incorporates common core skills such as identifying text structure, and using context clues to determine word meaning. The discussion questions are designed to be used either in a small group discussion out loud, or to have students record their answers on the discussion question pages. Enjoy!
