Looking for a no-prep Book Study to delve deeper into Lubna and Pebble by Wendy Meddour?

This resource has 43 engaging standards-aligned activities/printables designed to do just that!

Lubna and Pebble is a quietly beautiful story about a girl in a refugee camp who finds solace in a pebble, who listens to her stories and becomes her best friend. It is a perfect read aloud to discuss the importance of empathy.

Many of the printables are differentiated by product, allowing you to address differing ability levels in your classroom. Since the printables cover a range of modalities, you could also differentiate by student interest (showing understanding through drawing, words, etc.).
