Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan is a great historical fiction novel study for 4th to 6th grade students and is a hit with both boys and girls. Snow Treasure is a fast paced adventure story, and this novel resource is low prep with high engagement.
There are a variety of reading and writing activities from which to choose in this novel unit. There are also several opportunities to provide enrichment with mini research tasks to learn more about Norway and World War II.
