PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you want your students invested in the novel before they start reading it? Doing some of these background activities beforehand gives students practice with online research and citing sources, oral presentations, map reading, taking notes on a chart, and prewriting. Moreover, these pages have interesting video clips of the author Yann Martel and of various animals along with pictures. A 15-slide PowerPoint on pilgrimages is a separate item.

INCLUDED:
Plants, animals, and picines
Lakshmi allusion
Maps of Canada and India
Photos of momento mori
Sloth photos, videos, and info
Strange animal videos
A narrative pre-writing assignment
World religions research
Minimal study questions for chapters 1-43
A student chart for very brief chapter notes (key included)

LIFE OF PI was the first movie I saw in 3D, and it was awesome! I truly hope these background activities make teaching this novel more fun for you and your students!

A fellow novel lover,
