Product Description

This is a response notebook type packet containing questions and activities to accompany Earthquake in the Early Morning, a book in the Magic Tree House Series by Mary Pope Osborne. The notebook / packet can be used to teach throughout and/or accompany the Earthquake in the Early Morning book study. It could also be used during social studies classes.


Pages included are as follows:

-Cover sheet

-Similar cover sheet with a name space suitable for a student notebook / packet cover should the purchaser so choose

-K-W-L Sheet

-5 Question Sheets covering each chapter (3 questions per chapter; 2 chapters per sheet)

-Earthquake Extension Research Sheet

-San Francisco Extension Research Sheet

-Headline News Sheet where students can use their imaginations and creativity to pretend they are television reporters providing news and information about the San Francisco earthquake.


-Author Sheet where students can use their imaginations and creativity to write about the 1906 San Francisco earthquake for their book publisher.

-Mail Time Sheet where students can use their imaginations and creativity to pretend they received a letter from the boys to whom they gave their boots in San Francisco, and they are corresponding back to the boys by writing what they will say. Do they write a letter? Do they email? Do they text?

Creativity can take students in all directions with the news, author, and mail sheets as they could present to the class how/why they made their choices and also allows a great opportunity for role playing and class presentations as students could be actors/actresses with their work.


-Word Search

-Story Elements Sheet for students to record the characters, setting, problem, key events, solution, and theme of the story

-Finger Feedback! Here students can rate the book and explain their thoughts about it by rating it anywhere from 1 – 5 fingers and then explaining the reasoning behind their choice.

-Answer Keys
--for each of the chapter questions (chapters 1-10)
--for the Earthquake Extension Sheet
--for the San Francisco Extension Sheet
*The answer keys are included as guides, but of course class discussions could provide additional answers. :o)

I have tagged this as compatible with certain ELA Common Core State Standards for 2nd and 3rd grades, but readers of other elementary grades would enjoy this book also. :o)

I included the extension sheets (Earthquake and San Francisco) as extra research and information seeking opportunities for students both in the library and online.
I hope you enjoy the packet and it will be helpful to you and your students!


***Good for ONE classroom use only.

***Please respect my work and time and do not distribute unless additional licenses are purchased. :o)
