Two great activities that would span five lessons on the life of the famous British author, Roald Dahl. The resources are perfect for students in 3rd grade or 4th grade who are learning about Famous Authors or some of his books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, Fantastic Mr Fox or The Witches.
NO PREP is needed!
Firstly, there is a close reading activity - children need to read through an informational text, and then answer comprehension and grammar questions, before completing an extension activity.
Secondly, there is a biography writing unit. The unit has been split into four separate lessons which will take students approximately 40-50 minutes each. Ideal for students learning about World History, or for Book Week activities.
Good luck, I hope you get some great results!
