Product Description
This guide was updated and expanded in August of 2016.

This is a mini-guide (a two-week literature study) for the book titled A Family Apart, by Joan Lowry Nixon. In this book, children are sent West on an orphan train when their widowed mother is unable to care for them.

The mini-guide contains vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and a complete answer key.

This is an interactive guide that enables parents/teachers to facilitate an oral discussion of the book, but it only provides space for one student to complete fill-in-the-blank activities. If you are interested in using the guide with more than one student, check out the options:
1) Reproducibles that contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: A Family Apart Reproducibles
a. When you purchase one set of Reproducibles, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students.
b. An Answer Key is not provided for the Reproducible Sheets; the answers for the activities on the sheets are found at the end of the mini-guide.
2) The guide is available in workbook format:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: A Family Apart Workbook
You do not need the Reproducibles if you purchase the guide in workbook format; the content of the guide in interactive format and in workbook format is the same.

Mini-guides are designed for homeschoolers, but can be used in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
