The Martian Chronicles: K-W-H-L Activity

This The Martian Chronicles: K-W-H-L Activity lesson plan also includes:

Prepare your class for a unit on Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles with an activity that works for pre-reading, during reading, and post-reading. Learners fill out a K-W-H-L chart to reflect on what they already know, what they'd like to learn, how they will find the information they need, and what they eventually learned once they have finished the novel.
