Gary Paulsen's poignant story of a young soldier during the American Civil War is studied through this no-prep unit with questions for each chapter plus answer keys, activities that include outlining, creative and argumentative writing, back-story, an essay, mini-glossaries and more.
Quizzes for chapters are included; Ch. 1,2,3; Ch. 4,5; Ch. 6; Ch. 7; Ch. 8, Ch. 9,10 - with answer keys.
With spelling mentioned on every 3 to 8 ELA CCSS, I made and include two pages of spelling ladders. These are a low key way to approach spelling and the puzzle lovers like them a lot.
I include a word search to familiarize students with names in the novel and an exercise for identifying which side states were on.
There is a CCSS RL check list included as well.
See Preview for a Table of Contents and three sample pages.
