Sign of the Beaver Redux
I'm using this book with the 4th graders I work with. It matches well with the scope of the 4th grade curriculum (Native Americans of the NE), the portrayal of the native americans is revisionist and best of all it has an accompanying video and audio. I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but here's a new wrinkle, the scanned page inserted into a word document combined with text boxes for original image insertion by the students. Good for word study. This could also be combined with the audio that accompanies the page. Here's the scanned page, with an example of how it could be completed and here is the matching audio.
