Take your students on an adventure with a timeless novel: The Black Stallion
, by Walter Farley. Two choice boards provide 32 different activities based on eight Common Core State Standards at the highest levels of Bloom’s taxonomy: application, analysis, evaluation, and creation.
These activities, designed for use after reading The Black Stallion
, can be used with an entire class, a small group, or an individual child. Because the cards require higher order thinking skills, they work especially well with high ability (gifted and talented) learners. The independent nature of the activities frees the teacher to work with other groups of students.
• brief instructions
• two choice boards
• two corresponding grids for assessment
• four related graphic organizers
How does it work? Simply determine which activities you want your students to complete. You might assign entire rows to emphasize certain standards or columns to emphasize specific levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy, mix and match, or allow students to mix and match.
