What books do you use for historical fiction in 3rd grade besides Sarah, Plain and Tall?

With my highest reading group, I am using Katie's Trunk by Ann Turner. It is about the revolutionary war and is really good.

Little House in the Big Woods, but the kids love it. They learn a great deal about how people lived then. We listen to fiddle music, square dance, make butter, make a small quilt square, do a small craft of weaving, mix and cook journey cakes and then eat them, and make corn husk dolls. Plus we learn a little about how Laura Ingalls Wilder turned her life as a child into a series of books for children.

We're going to do lit circles with three books by Mildred D. Taylor. The Friendship, The Gold Cadillac and Mississippi Bridge. I haven't started this yet.

I just taught historical fiction. I introduced it using picture books. I used, Don't Say Ain't; Goin' Someplace Special; Pink and Say, and Escape from Pompei and a few other titles I can not recall at the time. As a read aloud I am reading Bud, Not Buddy which is also Historical Fiction.

Good Luck!

"Who Was..." Series

There are several books that begin with "Who Was...Leonardo da Vinci? Amelia Ereheart(sp), Sacajawea..." Etc, there are about 15 different ones. These are not historical fiction, (they are expository), but they are wonderful books that read like novels. I am doing da Vinci in my class right now, and I knew it was going to be high interest, but I had no idea the kind of effect it would really have. Everybody loves reading now. As one student put it, "Get out our Leonardo da Vinci books? I love Leonardo da Vinci." He repeated this about three times.

Check one out from you school library. You will begin lesson planning as you read.

To go along with our study of Jamestown, we read "A Lion to Guard Us". It is fabulous and a 2.8 reading level. The kids really get into it.
