Product Description
The main character Miles "Pudge" Halter is obsessed with the last words people say in their lives.

This 3-page activity looks at the final dying words mentioned in the novel. Students will read 20 last words and think about their meanings (some of which are deep and others pretty off-the-wall).

They will then try to organize the last words into groups that have similar meanings. They will title their combined theme, then write a paragraph about what they think the last words mean together.

Finally, learners will think about what they'd like their own final dying words to be. They'll need to imagine pictures, images, and words that thematically match the meaning of their last words, then draw their best artistic collage of illustrations that show what they mean.

This is a great activity to do toward the end of the novel to wrap up some of the deep meanings and allow students the opportunity to artistically express their feelings.
