The Double Life of Pocahontas
by Jean Fritz

March, 1998 Teacher: Mary O'Haver


There are several books at each grade level designated "core" books. They are books that are to be read and discussed in class as instructional or directed reading lessons. Emphasis is placed on setting, plot, character study, etc. After reading The Double Life of Pocahontas by Jean Fritz, we decided create a slide show that would cover events that took place in the book. They had gone through several lessons on using the many tools in Kid Pix and had each created their own personal slideshow about themselves.

We hope to share this project with other students that have read or are going to read this book. Since we have read several other Jean Fritz books and plan to read more before the end of the year, we will also do an author study of Jean Fritz and her books.
