This is one of my favorite novels to read with middle school students. It has a powerful story while also being a lighthearted and engaging read. It is one of the few novels that all students seem to enjoy. This resources contains vocabulary activities for the novel that introduce students to some of the more challenging words in the novel through a variety of formats. This resource is great to use in conjunction with the accompanying chapter questions and opinion questions. There are also modified chapter questions available for students on adapted or modified learning plans.
