This particular novel study for Al Capone Does My Shirts is great to use within a historical fiction text unit. The packet contains 37 pages of comprehension questions, unknown or difficult vocab words in the text, activities, character descriptions and comparisons, word webs, contrasting, illustrations, chronological ordering, personal connections, synonyms and antonyms, fact and opinion, and much more!
This packet requires the students to extend beyond just the normal comprehension questions to make the story come alive. This packet also includes a 9 page answer key. The answer key is great if the students are working independently or seperate from the large group, such as a higher level grouping in 4th grade.
