Product Description
This week long unit's CCSS activities revolve around Rochelle Pennington's true story, The Christmas Tree Ship and finish with Gloria Houston's The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree. Informational Summary Writing is the focus, along with figurative language and complete subject/complete predicate review, main ideas and details, research opportunities, making inferences, and theme. Creative Writing includes writing a newspaper RAFTS and a response paper to Houston's touching tale. There is a tremendous opportunity to teach primary sources in Social Studies as well, as the Christmas Tree Ship is a hot topic among Michigan historians.
