After April vacation, we move into our historical fiction unit. I love this trailer because it features period music, dress, it's in black and white, and it asks lots of intriguing questions.
Activity Name: Write a Letter
Activity Description: Letter-writing plays an important role in What the Moon Said. Write a letter that Esther might have written from the farm to her friend Shirley if she'd known Shirley's new address. Then, have Shirley write a letter back to Esther. This is a great way to delve into perspective. You can find more activities here. You can find discussion questions here.
