In this thematic literacy center, students can deepen their understanding of Community Heroes, the theme of Unit 2 in Treasures. Students will work on creating and describing a new invention, reading comprehension, identifying reality vs. make believe, creating their own tall tale, using Treasures vocabulary to create a mini-movie, and writing a thank you letter to firefighters.
Use these activities together in a Treasures Unit 2 thematic binder (Binder cover included), allowing for student choice, or as separate assigned tasks.
