Magic School Bus
Chapter Book #15
Voyage to the Volcano
A Novel Study
This novel study was created for my 4th grade class, most of whom are low readers and need worksheets and questions that are not busy, less wordy, and have extra supports to find the answers in the text and complete the activities. I wanted a balance of content and fluff in a format they could handle better. I have been having trouble finding this and started creating my own resources to better meet the needs of my students.
It has 2 worksheet pages for each chapter in the book. They can be used together (printed front/back) or separated and only one given. If your students can handle being given a packet, you could print it as an entire packet.
Each chapter has a section with comprehension questions (find the answer in the text), and then other various activities covering many skills.
That’s 16 worksheets (plus answer keys) in a simple layout with built-in extra supports.
Chapter 1: simile, alliteration, idiom, point-of-view, Latin roots
Chapter 2: main idea/details, vocabulary, Latin roots
Chapter 3: vocabulary, fact & opinion, writing a paragraph
Chapter 4: charts & diagrams
Chapter 5: inferencing, paragraph structure
Chapter 6: visualizing, character traits, simile, onomatopoeia, personification
Chapter 7: puns, antonyms, cause & effect
Chapter 8: questioning
I hope that this resource helps some other class!
