This assignment includes vocabulary from Tony Hillerman's The Boy Who Made Dragonfly and a Tic Tac Toe project which can be used as an assessment or as test prep.
The Tic Tac Toe requests students to use their various talents: they can draw, write, create online games, etc.
There's even a chance for them to earn some bonus points!!!
The Boy Who made Dragonfly is a GREAT novel written at a middle school level (great for high school students to ease their way into procedure rather than content).
According to scholastic "Interest Level Grades 6 - 8 Reading Level Grade level Equivalent: 7.1 & Lexile® Measure: 1090L"
The theme of the story is great for Thanksgiving (it is one of sharing) or autumn overall (harvest). Also great for a background of the Zuni Tribe.
