Find stories where it's VERY relevant

some stories setting isn't necessarily important - it could have happened anywhere. However, some couldn't take place any where or time else. My third graders are reading Miracles on Maple Hill and the maple syrup business plays a large part in the story - it has to be set where there are maple trees and that type of business.

My second graders are reading Trumpet of the Swan - the setting has to include places where a swan could live - you couldn't have the story set up in a desert, there'd be no pond for the swans to live in...
