Product Description
This document includes various quizzes, tests, and projects for Homer Hickam’s space adventure novel “Crater.” Splitting the book into six sets of chapters, I made 2-4 different quizzes for each set of chapters. There are also different styles of final tests, although you could use a combination of the quiz questions for a final test. Answer keys are included for quizzes and tests. In addition, there are two different projects for the novel. One is an individual project and the big one is for four groups per class period where the students set up a space exploration company and form four departments to produce a final product that helps to review the book: Human Resources for characters, Civil Engineering for settings, Mechanical Engineering for all the sci-fi aspects, and Product Documentation and Marketing for chapter summaries and vocabulary. Directions for the group project are given as well as the expectation for the final product which the groups present. Scoring rubrics are included for the presentations. My ninth graders had a blast doing this project and I can’t wait to do it again this year. NOTE: This is a completed upgraded product that I had earlier posted for this novel. Another NOTE: On November 5, 2014, I added another test on the novel. It includes MC questions about characters, setting, literary devices, quotations on characters and setting, etc.
