  • Read an Annie Oakley tall tale (based on "Annie Got Her Gun!") and answer the multiple choice questions, then read a true story about Oakley with short answer comprehension questions. Sort fact from fiction in a review worksheet. Think and write about the values reflected in these tall tales. Finally: Write your own Annie Oakley tall tale. A great unit and a fun "women's history month" tie-in.
  • This thorough unit is packed with information about some of the most common fallacies: how to spot them, and how to avoid them. Subsequent lessons are available on our member site.
