Magic Tree House Novel Studies: No Prep Novel Studies for Dinosaurs Before Dark, The Knight Before Dawn, Mummies in the Morning, Pirates Past Noon, and Night of the Ninjas
Need a way to blend reading with science and social studies? The Magic Tree House series is a favorite of many students and teachers. Taking place throughout historical and scientific contexts, Magic Tree House books can support cross-curricular connections between many commonly covered science and social studies topics.
Versatile enough to be used in whole group, small group, or as an individual book study, each section of the trifold is focused on a different essential reading comprehension skill and aligns with state and Common Core standards.
Each book is set up to take 10 instructional days. However, the set is designed to allow for teachers to teach a single mini-lesson that applies to all the books. This match-up of daily skill practice makes running multiple book clubs simultaneously a breeze!
