**This product is part of the Trickster Tales MEGA BUNDLE.**

This unit is based on the scholastic series graphic novel set, Trickster Tales: Tulugaq and other Inuit Tales, created by Chris Kientz and Angus Icewalker. The stories are not included in this unit but can be found here.
These tales are perfect for integrating reading strategies and Indigenous literature with a whole class using one read aloud book or in smaller literacy groups. I personally used this unit in my Daily 5 (literacy centres) routine. It worked well as the students quickly understood the tasks and could complete them independently.
This unit is suitable for grade 1 (with support) and grade 2, 3 and 4. With eight books/activities the unit could take between 2-3 weeks.
Reading strategies used in this unit to explore the tales are: Summary, Visualization, Connection, Compare and Contrast , Prediction and Infer.
Included is a 14-page student response booklet, answer key, and assessment rubric.
This unit can be printed out in its entirety as a student response booklet or individually to support a particular reading strategy or book.
The Tulugaq Tales included in this unit are:
Tulugaq and the First People
Tulugaq and the Snowy Owl
Tulugaq and the Colourful Dream
Tulugaq and the Fox
Tulugaq and the Snow Geese
