Weslandia: An ELD Storyline

This Storyline is based on the book, Weslandia by Paul Fleischman. It tells the story of boy who creates his own civilization as an elaborate summer project. After his garden is mysteriously planted with magical seeds one night at the beginning of the summer, unknown plants begin to grow. From these plants, he is able to create his own civilization. Students participate in the story as schoolmates of Wesley. They get to experience the story through process drama, research, writing activities, etc. This Storyline was originally written for the regular classroom by Colleen Vallerga. I adapted it for ELD. All 10 ELP standards are included.
