Dive in, and kick off Dark Day in the Deep Sea today! Your crew will assemble a flip book to cover standards this week, gain background information about the HMS Challenger, learn about their new skills and vocabulary, and begin the novel.
In this unit, students will explore three types of folktales while practicing their critical thinking skills. In day one, students work in two groups to analyze texts, determine commonalities, and label their learning.
The journey begins! The students embark on a journey of understanding how a novel builds as they meet characters and are introduced to the setting in chapters 1-3 in The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane.
