This daily activity includes 35 total questions, which focus on the plot and the literary elements of HOLES, organized in multiple-chapter sets. There are between two and five questions for each set of chapters.
I assigned the questions as a warm-up at the beginning of the period. Students had to answer the questions, then we discussed the answers. This typically took between 10 and 20 minutes. Students were expected to correct any incorrect answers as they could also use this handout to study for the test. These questions can also be assigned as homework.
The last page with the final set of questions is provided as a PREVIEW.
WHY NO ANSWER KEY: Because I used this as a warm-up activity and obviously had already read the book, I had no need for an answer key as the answers would come up in the discussion. Please use this activity in whatever way suits your classroom and students, but please understand that if your use of this resource requires an answer key (such as self-directed peer correction), it would be your responsibility to create one.
