The Lie Tree Novel Study + STEAM BUNDLE

This resource is designed to be used during Reading Workshop and is to be used with The Lie Tree Novel Study by Frances Hardinge with a STEAM extension about designing and making an adapted organism. ABOUT THE NOVEL: Faith Sunderly leads a double life. To most people, she is reliable, dull, trustworthy—a proper young lady who knows her place as inferior to men—but inside, Faith is full of questions and curiosity, and she cannot resist a mystery: an unattended envelope, an unlocked door. She also knows secrets no one suspects her of knowing. For one, she knows that her family moved to the close-knit island of Vane because her famous scientist father was fleeing a reputation-destroying scandal. And when her father is discovered dead shortly thereafter, she knows that he was murdered. In pursuit of justice and revenge, Faith hunts through her father’s possessions and discovers a strange tree. The tree bears fruit only when she whispers a lie to it, and when that fruit is eaten, it delivers a hidden truth. But while the tree might hold the key to her father’s murder, it could also lure his murderer directly to Faith. **ABOUT THE RESOURCE: **Designed in alignment with the 2014 National Curriculum of England’s reading objectives for Year 6, the pack includes: Chapter Summaries, Comprehension Questions, Digging Deeper Opportunities (includes character studies and plot studies), Creative Writing Tasks, Non-Fiction Tasks related to content of the novel (fossils, sea caves, The Origin of the Species, mermaids), and a STEAM enrichment activity where children design, make, and evaluate their own adapted insect according to Key Stage 2 Science, Art and Design, and Design Technology objectives.

READING BADGES (in watercolour)  to encourage independent reading

READING BADGES (in watercolour) to encourage independent reading

This resource is designed to be use as a reading incentive in the classroom. Children choose genres in order to earn badges. I have had coworkers staple them to boards in their rooms next to the names of children. In my own classroom, I use paper chains and hang them across the ceiling like vines. Each genre gets its own colour of paper and children earn a chain link every time they finish a book. Once they have four chain links, they earn a badge. The room ends up looking awesome, and is evidence of all of the books being read when anyone asks! Very cool. Blank anchor charts are also included to complete with your class if that is what you'd prefer.

This resource is designed to be used during Reading Workshop and is to be used with Iron Hearted Violet by Kelly Barnhill. It bundles Iron Hearted Violet Novel Study with STEAM packs about researching and creating an anatomical model of a heart and creating a dragon eye using art skills focusing on shade and tone. ABOUT THE NOVEL: Newbery Medal winner Kelly Barnhill spins a wondrously different kind of fairy-tale: In most fairy tales, princesses are beautiful, dragons are terrifying, and stories are harmless. But this isn’t most fairy tales… Princess Violet is plain, reckless, and quite possibly too clever for her own good. Particularly when it comes to telling stories. One day she and her best friend, Demetrius, stumble upon a hidden room and find a peculiar book. Aforbiddenbook. It tells a story of an evil being, called the Nybbas, imprisoned in their world. The story cannot be true–not really. But then the whispers start. Violet and Demetrius, along with an ancient, scarred dragon-the last dragon in existence, in fact-may hold the key to the Nybbas’s triumph or its demise. It all depends on how they tell the story. After all, stories make their own rules. Iron Hearted Violet is a story about the power of stories, our belief in them, and how one enchanted tale changed the course of an entire kingdom. ABOUT THE RESOURCE: This pack includes Chapter Summaries, Comprehension Questions, Digging Deeper Opportunities (includes character studies and plot studies), Creative Writing Tasks, Non-Fiction Tasks related to content of the novel (Storytellers, Dragon, Archery, Insect Strength, The Heart), and and STEAM enrichment activities where children investigate, design, make, and evaluate an anatomical heart and dragon eye according to Key Stage 2 Design Technology and Art and Design objectives.
