This is easily one of the best purchases I have made on Teacher’s Pay Teachers. I am a Gifted and Talented resource teacher for Elementary students and I cannot tell you how hard it is to find ELA units that are interesting and challenging to my 4th/5th grade groups! A lot of them griped when the story started, but really dug into half way in. I used this as an opening Unit for the year and we are combining it with a project to develop an anti-bullying program for our school. The articles and videos suggested really helped the students dive into the story on a much deeper level. Excellent resource!
