Cocoa Ice
  • Focus Skills:
  • To determine likenesses and differences within and across texts
  • To read and understand a historical fiction selection
  • To read and understand poetry
  • Genre
  • Informational Fiction- tells a story that explains a topic using characters and events that are not real.
  • Summary
  • A girl in nineteenth-century Santo Domingo tells how her family harvests cocoa, and a girl in nineteenth-century Maine tells how her family cuts ice from a river. Both girls are delighted when their distant communities become neighbors by trading the goods each has to offer.
  • Reading Strategy
  • Create Mental Images
  • Good readers create mental images (pictures in their minds) as they read. Using the details in a story to create pictures in their minds can help them understand what the setting and characters in a story are like. Using the details about the two settings in “Cocoa Ice” can help you picture these two very different places.
