This guide was updated and expanded in September of 2017.
This is a mini-guide (a two-week literature study) for the book Island of the Blue Dolphins, by Scott O'Dell. This compelling story is based on the fact that in the early 1800s an Indian girl was accidentally abandoned on an island far off the coast of California.
The mini-guide is divided into ten sections and contains vocabulary exercises, discussion questions, reading activities, life application/Bible connections, and an 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 the fill-in-the-blank activities. If you are interested in obtaining Reproducibles that contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities, click on the link:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: Island of the Blue Dolphins Reproducibles
1) When you purchase one set of reproducibles, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students.
2) An Answer Key is not provided for the reproducibles; the answers for the activities on the sheets are found at the end of the mini-guide.
CNS is working on creating workbooks for some of the interactive guides; the content is the same -- the only difference is that the workbooks contain spaces to write all of the answers. If you are interested in submitting a request to have CNS create a workbook for this guide, contact Chris Roe at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Mini-guides were originally designed for homeschoolers; they are also used in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
