The Josefina Story Quilt by Eleanor Coerr is a historical fiction story about a girl traveling west in a covered wagon in the spring of 1850. It is an easy chapter book for 2nd through 4th grade students.
This 40 page unit provides resources for activities before, during, and after reading. There is also an graphic organizer, 4 chapter outline, cloze format for student support, and student writing pages to produce a student-made four chapter book.
There are also wagon train and patchwork quilt activities and printables!
We use this unit to support our past v. present standards. It is great unit to showcase social studies and language arts during Open House time!
