Literature Unit - My Side of the Mountain
by Kim A. Howe, M.S.
Sam runs away from home in search of independence and solitude. During his seclusion in the forest, he meets many animal friends and learns to live off the natural resources available. He soon comes to realize, however, that all humans need the love and companionship of other people. Study root words, prefixes, and suffixes related to nature. Develop your own idea for a survival story and learn to write a newspaper article.
This unit can be used independently, but it is also designed to be used concurrently with the Science / Social Studies Unit 3: Biomes.
