This is one of the best Underground Railroad picture books I have found to use in my classroom. Students add their own story to their wordless picture book with the help of storyboard pages. Pack includes:
What is a Historical Narrative?
Storyboard Sequence Sheets (to go with the book)
Revising and Editing Checklist
Final Copy Writing Sheets
Historical Narrative Rubric
We display the finished stories on parchment paper with copied pictures of the illustrations placed around the outside of a bulletin board in order. You can copy the writing sheets that are included in this packet on parchment style paper (like resume paper), cream colored copy paper or just have students write it on blank paper (without lines).
While writing these historical narratives, I teach a few mini-lessons on mood, writing using emotions, and using detailed descriptions.
Time to get writing!
