PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

To Build a Fire by Jack London + Informational Text + Poetry Connection

This is one of my favorite lessons to teach! By breaking up the text with relative articles and including videos and photographs, my students remain engaged throughout the (long) short story. The informational text and activity on survival gets them hooked before the story begins, and the poetry connection always leads some great conversation about the love of dogs.
