Meet Stanley Yelnats, a boy who is wrongly accused of a crime and sent to a juvenile detention camp. Here, he meets a variety of interesting characters. Explore the desert biome and the dangerous animals that live in this region. Recognize irony, practice possessive nouns, and correct run-on and fragment sentences. Each unit contains both parent instruction pages and student activity sheets for ~3 weeks of daily instruction.
This unit is designed to be used in conjunction with Unit 2: Rocks and Minerals, but can also be used as a stand alone literature unit.
