This is a great novel study that accompanies the book, What Was Ellis Island? by Patricia Demuth.
There are 16 pages total. It includes pre-reading activities, and questions for each chapter. The chapter work includes vocabulary match, definitions, questions, illustration activities, and writing activities. There are three final project choices and a reading quiz with an answer key.
This unit would be perfect for your 3-5 grade students. You could use it in small groups, whole class, or for independent students.
I hope you enjoy it!
