This is a novel study to go along with STAT: Home Court by Amar'e Stoudemire. This book works well for kids who love sports but are reluctant readers as well! The author is also an NBA player, and the book is based on his own experiences.
The unit is 40 pages, plus a test and answer key.
Chapters are grouped in pairs, and each has vocabulary words, dictionary work, comprehension questions, and questions to go a little further. Similes and Onomatopoeia are also worked on in this unit.
