Product Description

This background building unit is for the excellent novel, The War that Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley, suitable for 4th grade through 8th. It is intended for use before beginning to read the novel to build background. Students are either assigned or select a background topic and complete a project to "become the expert" on that topic. They keep that information throughout the reading of the novel and share with the class as needed or when relevant to the reading.

There are 7 topics included for students to choose from e.g. Britain during World War II, clubfoot, etc.

Included are...

  • Teacher guide explaining the projects (PDF format)
  • Powerpoint for printing templates and teaching students (editable PPT and PDF format)
  • Supplementary slideshow with visuals and videos to support the topics discussed in the book. (Google Slides link)

This product can be used on its own, but it was designed for use with the Interactive Reader's Notebook for this novel, also in my store.

In addition to this product, activities for the full novel are available as a unit is available! Buy the unit and save over 25%!
