Johnny Appleseed Guided Reading Activites

I posted on Instagram (msleslieann01) a few weeks ago my love of the the Who Was series. These are WONDERFUL resources for teaching biographies and they are working great in our fifth grade room. I created a pack of guided reading activities to use with the "Who was Johnny Appleseed?" book since it's almost John Chapman's birthday. This book is filled with interesting facts. The unit would be great for small groups. I decided to post about it here on Life in First Grade for all you 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade teachers out there. There are also some comprehension sheets that K and 1st could use. Here's what's included:
{My favorite part? The comprehension questions for each chapter. I also included the answers so you don't have to spend time searching! ;) )
