Teaching "To Build a Fire" doesn't have to be a long, cold experience! With this up-to-date mini unit teaching pack, you have everything you need to set, teach, enjoy, and assess this classic shorty story. Plus -- it's all super low prep and standards based.
Student Experience: Students will step into the shoes of the traveler in the pre-reading activities and explore the Alaskan terrain, answer text-based questions, read about a real-life survivor and make comparisons, and analyze the film version of this text. Each activity is designed with the teen audience in mind from its content, rigor, and visual appeal.
