EngageNY Grade 5 ELA Module 3b, Unit 1: The Inuit Thought of It: Amazing Arctic Innovations

Collector: Ann V.

Long before grocery stores, refrigerators, insulated clothing, central heating, snowmobiles, and motorboats, the native Inuit people of Canada learn how to use the natural resources available to survive in the Arctic. In the first unit of Module 3b, pupils read The Inuit Thought of It: Amazing Arctic Innovations, by Alootook Ipellie with David MacDonald, to learn about how the Inuit came to settle in the area and the ways they used the resources that were available to meet their basic needs. Scholars learn how to create a visual gist of the text, complete a main idea graphic organizer, and examine supporting details used by the authors to support their opinions.
