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 a complete Answer Key.
The interactive guide 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 following options:
1) Reproducibles (contain all of the fill-in-the-blank activities -- when you purchase one set of reproducible sheets, you have permission to make a copy for each of your students): Mini-Guide for Seniors: The Black Pearl Reproducibles
2) The guide is also available in a workbook format; in this format there is space for students to write all of the answers: Mini-Guide for Seniors: The Black Pearl 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.
NOTE: The content in the interactive guide and the workbook guide is the same; the only difference is the spacing.
Mini-guides were originally 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:
