This Unit Plan has everything you will need to teach with the book "Who Was King Tut?" by Roberta Edwards. The questions are specifically designed to promote higher level thinking in students. Daily Lessons, Students' Questions and Vocabulary Practice are included. There are also two writing prompts with scoring guides and two tests included.
These lessons are aligned to the Common Core standards. In this 12 day Unit Plan the students will :
-Determine the main idea of a text and explain how it is supported by key details; summarize the text. (RI.4.2)
-Describe the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem /solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text. (RI.4.5)
-Write informative/explanatory texts to examine a topic and convey ideas and information clearly.(w.4.2)
-Write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences or events using effective technique, descriptive details, and clear event sequences. (W.4.3a-e)
The student edition and teacher's manual are both included in this file. I make copies of the student edition for each student, but have students write their responses in their Reader's Journal. You will be able to use them over again.
