Books I Love – Night of the Twisters

on June 6, 2012

One book I love to read with my students is Ivy Ruckman’s Night of the Twisters. It goes wonderfully with all of our literature objectives, but it is also a great story for bringing in the weather related objectives of 5th grade science. The readability level is on the 4th grade level, so it allows us to focus on specific reading and science skills. I also love that this story is based on a real event in history!

Here are some resources for teaching with Night of the Twisters:
