Here is a fine unit of lessons which compare and contrast the culture during the time period of the classic book, Little Women to present day. Topics covered are the family, politics, morality, fashion, transportation, cities, historical events, and much more. Fifth graders take a close look at the many ways the war affected one particular family: the March family. This 22-page plan contains worksheets, quizzes, activities, rubrics, and explicit instructions on how to implement the lessons. Very good!
