This is a mini-guide (a two-week literature study) for the book titled The Witch of Blackbird Pond, by Elizabeth George Speare. In this book, Kit travels from Barbados to the Colony of Connecticut in 1687 to live with her aunt's family. Kit finds life in New England very different from her former life.
The mini-guide 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 fill-in-the-blank activities. If you are interested in using this guide with more than one student, check out the options:
1) Reproducibles contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: The Witch of Blackbird Pond 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 reproducibles; the answers for the activities on the reproducibles are found at the end of the mini-guide.
2) Workbook format -- in this format there is space for students to write all of the answers:
Mini-Guide for Middlers: The Witch of Blackbird Pond Workbook
(If you purchase the workbook, you do not need the reproducibles because all of the fill-in-the-blank activities are included in the workbook.)
The content of the guide in interactive format and in workbook format is the same -- the only difference is spacing.
Mini-guides were originally designed for homeschoolers, but are now used in schools and co-ops. For more information about Mini-Guides, check out the mini-guide page of the CNS website:
