PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a very engaging and timely activity that deals with a piece of classic literature that is essential to the goals of the Common Core. Students are broken off in teams to "tweet" messages on the Island. They are collecting evidence from the text and having a good time while they do it. I love to make learning a game and this is the ultimate example of that.
I have included 9 constructed response questions to conclude the formative assessment.
