This unit goes along with book one in the series by Kristin Earhart. Included in this unit are discussion questions for each chapter, a description web for the setting, two pages of a vocabulary chart using context clues, a problem and solution chart, and a rain forest diagram. 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!
