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.
