There are activities / graphic organizers to go along with each of the texts and that help with comprehension. Students also apply what they know through different character trait writing activities.

A digital version for use with Google Classroom / Google Slides is now available!

These activities are self-explanatory and could be completed by students independently in a distance learning packet.
