This is designed for younger students. I used in in third grade but can also be used in younger grades. The first two pages have places for illustrating answers and writing. This a booklet mainly created to address the third grade standard for character traits, motives, and feelings. It also has some sequencing of events, problem/solution, and theme/lesson learned. Learning targets are included on the top of each page.

Why is the tree motivated to keeping giving to the boy?
Who do you think is happier, the boy or the tree? Explain your answer.
