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.
In day three of this fictional skill unit, we will re-read the second part of the text, "The Pain and the Great One," which focuses on the younger brother. We examine his character: traits, actions and words, and whether he changes in the story.
