This is a word sort for the novel I Survived The Joplin Tornado by Lauren Tarshis. Have students cut out the words and glue them into the appropriate places on the table. There really are no right or wrong answers; the goal of the activity is to get students exposed to new vocabulary and help them make predictions. You may want to ask, "Why did you choose to put that word into that category?" At the end, there is a place for students to use the results of their word sort to predict what the novel might be about.
