PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From "Roughing It," the full text of this short story tall tale by Mark Twain is here side-by-side with student questions and response requests. The lesson has students laughing as they read straight through the tale and then fill out a First Impression page.

Next, they go back and read closely, answering the questions and marking the text as requested. ALL ANSWERS INCLUDED

There is a worksheet included on Pseudonyms, with answer key.

Analysis questions follow the close reading exercise. There are also a glossary, word search, spelling count puzzle and maze.

A handout giving directions for students to write their own tall tale is included, as well as teacher suggestions for implementing the lesson. You'll love the wild tall tales the kids come up with!

Aligns with CCSS ELA, W3, 4, 5, 6, 7; RL1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Please see the Preview for two sample pages.
