Studying Historical Fiction

Currently the fifth grade has finished their study of historical fiction book clubs. The materials used were text sets based on various historical time periods or eras. These historical periods/eras included the Holocaust, Native American, Revolutionary War, Civil Rights, and Underground Railroad. The teach read aloud was the historical fiction book, Number the Stars, based on the escape of a Jewish family from Denmark during World War II.

As a class cumulative activity, each book club group created eight smaller projects to present to the class. The projects were based on their group's historical fiction book. There were many very creative projects, such as; iMovie TV reporters, plays, poems, drawings, writings, maps and many more. Nice job fifth graders!
