This 2 week, 72 page literature packet includes different project ideas as well as printables that complement the reading of THE BIG WAVE. A daily reading schedule is also included along with essential questions for your class to ponder.
My students love this book. I really like it as well, because it lends itself to "putting yourself in another person's place." We have great discussions about how Jiya felt when he lost his parents, which home we would have chosen and why, and how the Japanese culture is different from our own.

Suggested Reading Schedule
Project suggestions with grading rubrics and checklists
Suggestions for Activities for each day's reading
