So far this year during our read alouds we have read lots of different genres. We read fantasy (The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles) , science fiction (Among the Hidden), realistic fiction (Wonder). This week we started a historical fiction book, Fever 1793. The first three chapters were full of action and plot twists already!
From our reading so far we know the book takes place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1793. We took notes on some characters introduced, and will add more of their characteristics and traits as we find out more. We will use our inferring skills to help us draw conclusions about each character. We will also make a timeline of events in the book and match them to the historical records to compare and contrast as we go.
