A Storm Called Katrina by Myron Uhlberg

Recommended Grades:3-5

Set in August 2005, as Hurricane Katrina bore down on New Orleans, Uhlberg tells the fictional story of ten year old Louis Daniel and his family’s fight for survival. 

Lesson Idea:

Mentor Text: Writers Workshop:  Read aloud A Storm Called Katrina.  Pair it with Two Bobbies:A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship and Survival.  Ask students to choose a historical time period to write a historical fiction picture book similar to A Storm Called Katrina or Two Bobbies: A True Story of Hurricane Katrina, Friendship, and Survival.
