This file includes three activities for the short story "Marigolds." These activities will assess comprehension, give students writing practice, and encourage analytical thinking. Included:
* The quiz has 10 multiple choice questions focusing on comprehension. Use it alone as an after-reading quiz or include it in a larger test. Answer key included.
* 28 task cards with quotes from the short story that are examples of common literary terms, such as theme, characterization, simile, metaphor, etc. Students are asked to identify the literary term and draw conclusions. Answer key included.
* 5 topics for students to change from broad ideas into specific ideas. Students will then write a topic sentence for each idea as it relates to the story. An extension activity is for students to write a paragraph using one of their topic sentences.
