Blackout by John Rocco

Recommended Grades: 4-6

It was a normal summer night in the city. . . hot, noisy, busy.  Then the lights went out. The story of one family and what they do when the lights go out. 

Lesson Idea:


Making Inferences: Read aloud Blackoutand model for students how the pictures tell as much of the story as the text does (maybe more).  Model how to make inferences using the pictures as clues (Why might the lights have gone out? Why does the family continue to keep the lights out even when they are back on?)
