The City of Ember is an excellent book to capture the attention of students from 4th grade and up. Part 1 of this 55 page novel unit has worksheets for the introduction chapter through chapter 5 of this novel. Worksheets include activities and assignments related to vocabulary, figurative language, character and plot development and much more.
The entire packet has been teacher and student tested!
(NOTE: This unit is available in 4 separate pdf packages: City of Ember Parts 1-4 OR as a complete 55 page pdf file for a reduced price.)
I bought the first one of this series to see what the activities were like and I was not disappointed! I will be buying the next three sections for sure. Great activities, very engaging. There are some errors that make it difficult to use straightaway, but the content is good.
I have spell checked and hopefully fixed the errors and would like to make that up to you by sending the entire package your way. Thanks for your comments and sorry for the inconvenience. Please forward your email and I will send it to you.

LOVE this resource!!! There are a few minor errors but the content of the questions and activities are still rich. Love the map activity and the cross curricular tie-ins.

Overall, this is a great resource. I will use the information in pieces but not as a whole because of several spelling mistakes I have found. It would also be extremely helpful to include a key.
