What a fantastic deal! You would pay almost twice this much for just a unit, and this bundle includes a 25 slide powerpoint! It contains the following worksheets: anticipation guide, probable passage, character analysis, plot line, setting map, symbolism, after-reading discussion, and song lyrics. It also includes 3 tests with keys for each, in addition to a final test/project and a presentation rubric for the projects. The 25 slide powerpoint focuses on review questions and vocabulary (with pictures for each word) for each of the 4 sections of the novel. It includes a link to a video interview of the author, Lois Lowry, an anticipation guide, central thoughts, lyrics to "Where is the Love", as well as a final test/project for students. Created by Beverly Brown, this product contains incredible photographs and artwork. This unit is everything you will need to teach Gathering Blue.
very useful product... I especially like the vocabulary activity where the class matches the graphics with the word. We had fun with that one. The discussion questions are well-thought out. Also, I can't wait to use the project ideas. Thanks for a great product!
