Ben and Me

Students in Grade 5 recently read the novel Ben and Me which is about Ben Franklin and a mouse named Amos. Students had to recreate a chapter from the book in a 3D format. Along with the 3D representation of the chapter, students also had to rewrite the chapter they choose from the point of view of Ben Franklin. While reading this novel, students also created crossword puzzles with vocabulary words from the book and reviewed key events from the Revolutionary War.
