I used this used with a small group and they enjoyed it, even the girls I had placed in the group. I had a farm kid in this group who did a great job of providing background knowledge and experiences to help his group better understand the story.
I had an excellent time preparing this unit and I hope you will notify me if you find any mistakes so that I may fix them. I appreciate your input!
Have a wonderful week!
