This interactive unit includes vocabulary terms, poetry, author biography research, themes, character traits, and chapter summary activities. A bookmark is included with plenty of room for creativity and note taking. If you're looking for a complete book unit that is full of higher-level activities and NOT boring multiple choice tests, then this is it!
All interactive pages have been designed with easy-to-cut and easy-to-fold edges for frustration-free creativity!
Included in this resource is an art poster with a quote from the author. Perfect to hang on your bulletin board or make extra copies to send home with your students... it's a great way to continue making connections to your novel even when it's not reading time. My favorite way of using quotes is for an easy writing prompt. Encourage your students to think about what influenced the author's purpose behind their words.
In addition, you'll find a BONUS tri-fold bookmark that makes note taking during reading time super easy!
Looking for the "Crash" worksheet-type activities? Some teachers like to have both versions for the different needs of their students. You can find them HERE:
