One of my favorite third grade books is the Haunting of Grade Three. I think the characters are all so unique and fun to read about. So I like to do a character study of the six main characters.
A yearbook to complete. Copy one page for each one of the six characters. Then add the cover and back cover. - 2 versions to choose from. Features character traits.
A half page booklet to summarize the 4 mini investigations.
A test with two versions.
A history of Blackwell House report
Vocabulary cards featuring 8 words
Comprehension sheets with an answer key.
As an added activity I like to put a small group of students “in charge” of one character. They make a poster highlighting the character’s role in the story. They present their posters at the end of the story for a review of the characters before the test.
