Embrace the Halloween spirit with another addition to my "Frightfully Fun" series!
The best short stories capture my middle school students' imaginations, and Bradbury's famous text about time travel and dinosaur hunting certainly does just that!
This resource offers four outstanding activities wherein readers will investigate vocabulary present in the text, hunt for figurative language examples (similes, metaphors, personification, and allusions), delve deeply into the text using close-reading trivia, and design/write a brochure for the terrifying "Time Safari Incorporated" company.
Everything is ready to print for your ease and your students' enjoyment:
- 32 task cards
- close-reading question sheet with 10 questions
- figurative language hunt printable
- brochure assignment sheet
