Shadow is a book by Michael Morpurgo. This book is at a 4.9 reading level, based off the Accelerated Reader scale. I designed this unit based on 5th grade standards, however, the pages are easily adaptable and you can pick and choose which ones are relevant for your class and the level of your students.
This product took approximately 35 hours to compile. It is broken into 5 sections. Each section includes at least one page of the following: reading comprehension, vocabulary, cross-curricular, and co-curricular activities. Some of the skills addressed in this unit are:
Point of View
Compare and Contrast
History of Monopoly
Compiling and Interpreting Data
Synonyms & Antonyms
Social Studies: Seeking Asylum
Science: The Water Cycle
Also included: 12-page teacher's key! Each comprehension question includes the page number where the answer can be found based on the Scholastic edition that was printed in November 2012. Also included: 50 Vocabulary Word Wall cards
I am excited to share this with you and hope you will notify me if you find any mistakes so that I may fix them. I appreciate your input!
Have a wonderful week!
