Supporting Inuit Resources for Inclusion Learning for Elementary and High School Students

This no-prep, learning resource has SEVEN activities using comprehension strategies: Summarizing, Connection, and Visualization, Prediction, Compare and Contrast and Story Extension

These 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 gore factor, I wouldn't suggest doing this unit with a class under grade 5.

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 book and unit is featured in my blog: Infusing Indigenous Literature: Top 10 Inuit Traditional Tales


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.
