This is a set of questions I created for a 5th grade reading group. This book has an Accelerated Reading level of 4.6 and is worth 1.0 points. I tried to create a more computer and graphic savvy look using Pages on an Apple Macbook. Each chapter has 5 questions, including higher-level thinking questions and activating student's knowledge using context clues and drawing pictures (in some of the chapters). The easiest way I found to use this with my students was to print out the entire packet. However, please be aware if you have a high ELL population, you may benefit from doing the vocabulary pages prior to reading the chapters and completing the comprehension questions.
In total, this unit took me 13 hours to compile!! I hope that you enjoy it! This book is an excellent introduction to the horrors of World War II without being too overbearing for 4th and 5th grade. It could also be used for a 6th grade student who is struggling. This unit will likely take you 2 weeks, 3 at the most, depending on how in depth you want to take the book. It is an easy read.
Have a great year!
