If you're looking for the perfect book for Earth Day, Someday a Tree is it. It is about how Alice's family tree has been poisoned by chemicals. Alice and her mom spend every day sitting beneath the tree reading, telling stories, and reminiscing about the past, but Alice discovers a strange color and smell to the grass around the tree. This bundle will provide you with all you need for studying the book AND using it as a mentor text for writing and Earth Day studies.


In this unit, materials are included for the following:

1. Schema Builder (GIVE ONE GET ONE)

2. Vocabulary organizer and cards

3. Cause and effect relationships organizer

4. Making comparisons/connections

5, Visualizing using text evidence
