This guided reading packet was compiled to be used with 3 reading groups. I used the books "My Brother Sam is Dead", "Toliver's Secret" and "The Fighting Ground". However, with a few minor tweaks, you can use this same packet with ANY historical fiction books related to the Revolutionary War! There are activities about conflict, map skills, inferencing, prediction,comparison between yourself and the main character, cross-book comparisons (in which I have my students form jigsaw groups to discuss the main characters from the three different books we are reading), as well as sequencing and other history-related activities.
This is a great project because you can use the SAME packet with all of your reading groups. The information inside is what will change according to your reading groups! It's a great way to differentiate your instruction!
