AuWorld War II is a favorite nonfiction topic in my classroom. I can't wait to introduce my students to this book. The activity below is from Scholastic. Follow the link to the instructional guide.
Activity Name: Write Your Own Ranger Story
Activity Description: If you could send Ranger on a search-and-rescue mission anywhere in history, where would you send him? After you’ve read the Nonfiction Connections piece about search-and-rescue dogs, brainstorm a list of events from history where such help might have made a difference. Was there a fire or other disaster in your city a long time ago, or do you have a favorite period of history where Ranger would have opportunities to help? Once you’ve made your list, choose the idea that most captures your imagination.

It showcases the various literature choices in the classroom, celebrates students' voices and choices, facilitates getting to know each other through our literature choices, and facilitates communication with the global learning community.
