With guidance, Gary Paulsen's Lawn Boy is the perfect book for a middle to upper elementary grade reading group. This complete book guide includes a range of comprehension questions to test quick fact recall, as well as to encourage students to delve deeper and look at character motivations.
This guide includes:
- Chapter by chapter worksheets throughout the book
- One to two vocabulary words to be introduced per chapter. A final vocabulary list with definitions is included at the end of the packet in preparation for a quiz.
- A project-based "MENU" test: Students are given a choice of three independent projects in which to demonstrate their understanding of the vocabulary and the story. The choices include writing a letter, creating postcards, and imagining an interview. The menu test includes a checklist for students and a rubric for grading.
