PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Same Stuff as Stars by Katherine Paterson (author of Bridge to Terabithia) is the story of Angel, her younger brother Bernie and their search for a place to belong. Their mother, Verna, is wild and irresponsible. Their father, Wayne, is in jail. One morning Verna tells them to pack. She drives the children to their great-grandmothers house and without saying goodbye, leaves. Angel must navigate her new surroundings, a cantankerous old lady, a helpless little brother, and her own feelings of loss, all while staying out of the eyes of social services. Then she meets the Starman. A man who lives on her great-grandmother's property and teaches Angel all about the universe.

The Same Stuff as Stars is a fantastic novel about growth, family, and our place in the universe. The characters are relatable and engaging. The plot moves quickly, keeping students interested, but gives them a great deal to think about.

I use this unit as one of my small group novel studies. The students read primarily independently and work through the activities as they read. It could also be used as a whole class read with the pages printed individually.

This unit plan includes daily reading and activities with keys, vocabulary practice with keys, a multiple choice test and key, and a short answer test with key. The activity pages include critical thinking,figurative language, character and plot analysis, and much much more!
