This a collection of resources I use with my honors level ninth graders for their summer reading unit, Life of Pi. Included you'll find a reading survey, critical thinking / analytical group questions, slides that cover the "big" ideas of the story as well as some fun and interesting information, and a short test (with answer key). I'm also including 3 journal prompts and a literary essay assignment (3 prompt options and prewriting outline note sheet). When possible, I've included pdfs along with the Word documents. I've been teaching Pi for many years now. These activities are engaging and rigorous and hopefully your students will enjoy them. Please let me know if you have any questions.
