Sibling rivalry, hot summer days, lemonade stands with friends! “The Lemonade War” is an intriguing book for 2nd-5th graders. This 11 page document includes a title page, 2 pages of teaching suggestions, and 4 activities to use with the book. I have my students create a pocket that looks like a lemonade stand sign (directions and photo included) to put in their Reading Interactive Notebooks to hold the four activities in this unit.
Activities include: A mini-book to use to summarize each chapter, 4 more in-depth (but still short) writing assignments, character observation and analysis, and a Lemonade Stand business tips poster and summary activity.
The 8 pages to be copied for each child do not contain color graphics. (My school is probably like yours… stingy with color ink due to lack of funds.) The 8 pages, copied front and back on 4 pieces of paper, do not contain questions about each chapter – but do include activities to supplement your classroom discussion and help children apply what they are reading to real life!
