This product is intended for use with the story Twenty-One Elephants and Still Standing. It is a wonderful historical fiction text to use during a unit on New York City, the Brooklyn bridge, or just to teach close reading strategies. Students absolutely love this story, and the illustrations can’t be beat.
This product includes:
Day 1 - Picture Walk and Reading for Enjoyment-

I suggest photocopying the book for your students to use during close reading activities. These activities are great to use to gain student interest and build excitement.
