Unit of Study: Earthquake Terror

C. I. A. Unit of Study: Realistic Fiction Adventure—Earthquake Terror, 5.1

This is the first in a series of five designed for fifth grade. Within this unit, teachers are provided with scripted lessons for instructional read-aloud that incorporate reading, writing, language, listening, and speaking standards. This unit is aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

The book Earthquake Terror was selected for its writing style and genre. Peg Kehret's dramatic writing style will grip your students and they will beg you to keep reading each day. Students will examine key themes that arise in realistic fiction adventure, and explore the idea of man vs. nature. You will be amazed at your students' level of engagement as they master grade-level standards and read quality literature. Sarah recommends also purchasing the unit of study's companion text, Raising the Standards through Chapter Books: The C.I.A. Approach.
