In reading our class is starting a new genre dubbed as, Humorous Non-Fiction. The series we are reading is called You Wouldn't Want to Be..... series. Some of the titles are: You Wouldn't Want to be a Civil War Soldier, You Wouldn't Want to be a Greek Athlete, You Wouldn't Want to work on the Statue of Liberty. There is truth, but also humor in these books.
After reading our books, we take notes focusing on our senses to infer what it might be like to live during that time period. We turn our notes into phrases like; I smell, I hear, I see, I hope and finally present it to our classmates. So much fun!
