We used Snow Treasure, my Marie McSwigan (based on a true story) for our lower level 6th grade readers. It is a wonderful story that engages students and then we paired it with War Dogs, an informational book about Winston Churchill and his dog Rufus during WW II. We have also used this book with high reading 4th graders and on level 5th graders. The CCSS noted in this activity guide are for 6th grade. Please download our our FREE introduction to Book Study Buddies for more information on this project.
