This unit is amazing for teaching theme. With this purchase you are receiving ACTIVE READING QUESTIONS, VOCABULARY WORKSHEETS, PROJECT IDEAS, and RUBRICS to accompany the project ideas. This is a GREAT story, and MANY lessons/themes can be taken from it. ALthough I am gearing this unit toward the elementary level, it could really be used with any group. All of us can relate to the happenings within this story. Any student could develop meanings/themes from this story. These activities easily translate into common core instruction.
