Wonder Wednesday #132 (Historical Fiction)...

Wonder Wednesday: Historical Fiction

*Our current ELA unit is "historical fiction".

*We have been having a great time reading from a variety of historical fiction picture books and chapter books.

*The main target of this unit is to compare and contrast historical fiction to realistic fiction.

*One main goal our team had was to expose our students to high quality picture books within this genre.

*We have had the most meaningful discussions and conversations focused on the story lines of the picture books.

*Here are FIVE books that I have used with my students that we highly recommend...

 Historical Setting:  Civil War

  Historical Setting:  1927 with historical boxing match

  Historical Setting:  Japanese Interment Camp

  Historical Setting:  Segregated South

 Historical Setting:  World War Two in Denmark
