This 34 page PDF file contains guided reading activities for the children's biography Who Was Rachel Carson by Sarah Fabriny It includes questions and vocabulary lists for each of the 9 chapters, writing activities, sequence activities, character sketch template, crossword puzzle, quiz, and answer key. I believe this is appropriate for students in grades 4, 5, and 6. Also included is a list of the Common Core State Standards for reading informational text at a grade 5 level. This could be used for a combined unit for reading, science, and even social studies. It deals with ecology, environment, pollution, and pesticides.
