PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this activity to foster critical thinking and creative thinking in your students...and help them get to know Mark Twain better.

This 5-page printable activity . . .

• First, students read of the fame that MARK TWAIN has achieved not only from his books and short stories, but also from selected quotations from them.

• Next, they read a selection of almost 50 of his famous quotes. The quotes have a word or phrase omitted from them, and students determine how they would complete the quote.

• Finally, they compare their witticisms with those of MARK TWAIN

Example:Put all thine eggs in one basket—and ________________ that basket.
Answer: Put all thine eggs in one basket—and watch that basket.
