This novel study for the novel Insignificant Events in the life of a Cactus by Dusti Bowling includes a variety of activities that address a wide range of expectations. Each chapter section includes several comprehension questions, a diary entry page, a section for summarizing the chapter and a section for students to look up vocabulary related to the chapter. At the end of the file there are additional activities that can be used at any point during the novel study as well as some activities that should be done after reading the whole text. A digital version is also included that students can use with Google Slides. This digital version does not work with Google Read and Write as the text is embedded into the background of the slide.
This novel study includes 170 pages of comprehension questions and other activities. I do not recommend using all of these pages but instead you can pick and choose how often you want to assign a page to your students.
