KS3 Reading: My Family and Other Animals
An entire, lesson by lesson SOW with guided reading questions, games, activities and assessments. Although this is reading, there are lots of writing assessments woven in so that students see how the disciplines support each other. I hope it inspires some of your students the way mine have taken to it!

I used the pdf of the book which is available online for some of my weaker students and also watched the television series. The resource as a whole was excellent for my G&T students who really enjoyed the family's eccentric lifestyles and saw more than a bit of their own lives paralleled despite the historical context.

There are lots of opportunities for cross-curricular learning with Geography and History, so speak to your fellow teachers and see if you can cover it at the same time as they are teaching about WW2, post-colonisation, Greece, coastlines, or Globalisation.

Please rate and review it if you enjoy it :)
