Salt in His Shoes is the inspiring story of Michael Jordan as told by his mother and sister. With the support of Michael’s family he learned that patience, determination, and hard-work are the most important ingredients in the making of a champion.
The following companion includes multiple ELA activities for retelling, comparing, cause and effect, character evaluation, authors purpose/message, and vocabulary. Additionally, I have included a basketball themed STEM challenge simplifying advanced math concepts to accompany the story! There are several background and instructional pages as well as posters, a recording page, and a journal to guide students through the engineering process.
