  • 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.
  • Rosa and Thomas both have ideas about peer pressure and bravery, but they have different ways of responding. Compare the two stories using charts; answer short questions; make predictions about the future. A good character education lesson. Common Core: ELA: Reading Literature: RL.5.3

  • This short lesson doesn't provide answers, but provides the vocabulary for discussing ethical questions.
