Number the Stars {Novel Study, Picture Dictionary, & Antique Writing Project}
This unit contains seventeen pages of comprehension questions, seventeen pages of vocabulary word work, a picture dictionary, map, and an antique letter writing project.

While reading Number the Stars, I found that this novel is filled with challenging words related to the time period. Therefore, there is a large focus on using context clues and the dictionary to understand unknown words.

This lesson features clipart/fonts from Lettering Delights, Melonheadz, and Lindy du Plessis.
