Grade 5 explores symbolism and archetypes with fantasy books.

Grade 5 is finishing up a reading unit dedicated to the genre of fantasy. During this unit, students analysed many elements of fantasy books and made connections to other genre and society as a whole. Students investigated archetypes in literature, symbolism, metaphors, and the use of allegory in literature. Here are some of the series that students were reading.

In the next unit, students will focus on nonfiction texts, with a goal of reading more and more complex texts. Here are the learning progressions students will work towards in the next unit.
