Product Description
Supporting Inuit Literature in the Intermediate Classroom

The Gnawer of Rocks written by Louise Flaherty and illustrated by Jim Nelson, is a haunting traditional Inuit tale describing what happens when two young girls wander away from their village.

This unit was created to support a single read-aloud book, should a class set be unavailable.

Comprehension strategies/lessons used in this unit are: Summarizing, Connection, and Visualization, Prediction, Compare and Contrast and Story Extension

No prep, easy to use reading response pages are designed to engage and extend students learning while being captivated by a truly exciting and suspenseful story. Due to the gory details in the story, I would not suggest doing this unit with a class under grade 5.

To obtain a copy of this book and others like it, I recommend checking out Strong Nations, an online bookstore supplying indigenous and Native American books. Not only do they have an extensive selection, they provide themed book bundles for all age ranges.
