Product Description
25 names used by Lois Lowry in The Giver. Each name is listed on its own worksheet. Students research the origin and meaning of the name, other forms of the name, and famous people with the name. Biblical names include a Bible reference. Finally, students share why they believe Lowry chose this name for the story.

Suggested Uses:
• Give each student a name to research; share the results in class while reading the story.
• Have all students research only the main characters of the story.
• Create a bulletin board using the information students learn.
• Use these as discussion starters as you encounter each name in the story.
