The Secret Garden - Frances Hodgson Burnett

This book is about a spoiled little girl who's parents died of a horrible disease. She is sent to live with her widowed uncle. There she goes on many adventures and finds a few new friends. 

This is a book for upper elementary. I would use this lesson in association with history. This book was set in the late 1800s  to the early 1900s. The class would discuss the time period and what it might be like back then. The class would also discuss what was going on during this time in history.
