As a child I got ten dollars a week for helping my mom around the house (when I actually did help) and The magic Tree House books are what my money went towards. I loved these books growing up and went and re-read the first one Dinosaurs before Dawn for this project. I would recommend having this in a classroom from second until third grade. For a project I think that having a creative writing project after reading this would be great. The student could join Jack and Annie and come up with their own adventure. Another activity could be a reading map or journal.
