*Please Note: The interactive notebook and the book companion are the same activitites, in two different formats. The interactive notebook is filled with cut/paste/fold activities, while the book companion is in traditional worksheet form. Some teachers like to have both for the different needs of their students.*
This interactive notebook novel study is designed to be a relaxed unit for both teacher and students. The preparation is minimal. I have even included several pictures on how the completed project should look so there is no need to make a sample.
