Magic Tree House Curriculum: Lions at Lunchtime (Book 11)

Supplies:

  1. Magic Tree House Book Lions at Lunchtime [I try to get books from the library whenever possible, but they don’t always have everything.]
  2. Choose Lions at Lunchtime and then click on the book; Download the Cross-curriculum unit. We will be using the Reading Guide pages for comprehension for this book instead of a story map.
  3. Optional: Magic Tree House Games and Puzzles from the Treehouse book [This gets used a lot, but I will try to find alternatives online when possible. I make copies of the pages for easy gluing into the notebook]
  4. The spiral or composition notebook started with book 1
  5. Free account at Magic Tree House
  6. The usual: paper, printer, ink, pencils, crayons or colored pencils
  7. Other supplies will depend on what additional projects you choose to do

[This unit has a science focus.]
