Course Details

For each chapter of the book, I'll provide comments and explanations for anything that may be unclear to readers, expanding on the horse information, history, and geography of the Chincoteague and Assateague Islands.

Ages: This course will be suitable for any students who can read the book. The suggested age range for the book is 8 to 12 years. You'd have to be a pretty fluent reader to tackle the book at 8, but entirely possible for some kids. And I'd guess the interest level might go a few years beyond 12.
