This complete reading response unit is designed to support the children's book, Tales from the Tundra, retold by Ibi Kaslik and illustrated by Anthony Brennan.

Tales from the Tundra, is a collection of five traditional tales that have been told by many generations of elders and is perfectly geared for grades 2-4 or any classes focused on the Inuit or traditional tales.

This unit is developed to support a single read aloud copy and can be reproduced as individual student response booklets. There is zero prep needed (other than photocopying) and has at least two weeks worth of activities.

Also included is an answer key and assessment rubric.
