Everything you need and more to teach the Louisiana K-2 Guidebook lesson on The Stranger by Chris Van Allsburg! This week of lessons and related activities is developed for a second grade audience and follows the framework laid out by the Louisiana Guidebook. Students will have fun becoming detectives to identify the stranger and etching messages into the farmhouse window. Although this plan was designed for Louisiana teachers, this download would be useful for any elementary teacher working on this charming story with their class. This story is great for teaching inference, changing of the seasons, introducing fall, or as a tag-along to a farm study.
