This file includes:
1. List of 16 words directly taken from chapters 1-5 in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air
2. Definitions of those words
3. A very detailed (and quite universal) vocabulary activity packet that utilizes multiple skills with each word. This includes: definitions, synonym/antonym, illustration, personal connections, and usage within a paragraph.
4. A short answer vocabulary quiz that focuses on the usage of the word over the rote memorization of the dictionary definition.
My students have really felt a better connection to both the text and the vocabulary when using these activities and assessments. I often use the universal vocabulary packet for many daily assignment expectations throughout the year.
