What could be more appropriate for the month of October than an Informational Text Pack that begins with an article about Frankenstein’s monster? Not only is he one of Halloween’s most versatile characters, he is also a star of stage, screen, and TV. The strange thing is—he has never had a name and he owes everything to his strikingly ugly looks.
The second text takes students back to 1816, known as the Year Without a Summer when people in New England and a few states father south were shoveling out from under a foot of snow in June! It wasn’t until the 1980s that science understood exactly what happened.
Youngsters will be surprised by the connection between the Year Without a Summer and Frankenstein’s monster.
Each article is three pages of script accompanied by 15 CCSS aligned questions.
Full answer keys are included.
