PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students read a very short, very well-written short story "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury. They analyze the text, make inferences, cite textual evidence, and find similes and metaphors. Your students will really enjoy this story!

The premise: Nine-year-old students, some of which are bullies, live on Venus where it constantly rains and the sun is only visible for two hours every seven years. The bullies end up feeling sorry for what they have done to the main character (this is where students make inferences based on textual evidence.) Full of figurative language! Great for middle school.
