This guide was updated and expanded in September of 2017.
This is a two-week literature guide for the book titled The Black Pearl, by Scott O'Dell. In this book, young Ramon Salazar finds an amazingly large and lustrous black pearl -- and then an unexpected event occurs.
The mini-guide contains ten sections that include 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 this 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 reproducibles that contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities (when you purchase one set of reproducibles, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students):
