Salt in His Shoes is a story about Michael Jordan as told by his mother. It is a perfect companion piece to an activity for Martin Luther King, Jr. or a great stand alone activity in Black History Month. The story involves Michael learning that practice, determination and perseverance are what it takes to get better at something. This would be a nice addition to a Character Education lesson as well.

The activity packet includes word wall words, comprehension and inferences, a writing activity about goals and and a reflective writing activity using motivational quotes.

These lessons cover CCSS standards for grades 4-6 in citing textual evidence, determining the meaning of words, drawing evidence from literary text.
