This is a literature unit or novel study guide for the book "The Templeton Twins Have an Idea" by Ellis Weiner created by My Reading Resources. The School Library Journal's review says:
“Comparisons to Lemony Snicket's "A Series of Unfortunate Events" are inevitable, but this story feels fresh with a loving family of clever yet appealingly normal characters at its heart. Its narrator, like Snicket's, interrupts with definitions and additional information. However, Weiner's vain and snarky narrator is an important character, asking humorous review questions at the end of each chapter. An entertaining start to a new series." —School Library Journal
The unit contains:
Student packet - 30+ pages of word work, short answer questions, discussion questions, and writing prompts that cover many CCSS
