This item contains two Scoot and two ZAP! activities to accompany the novel "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry.
Scoot is a popular game played in many elementary school classrooms. Easily adapted to any content area and grade level, Scoot makes for a welcome change from just completing a worksheet for skill practice.
1. Subjects and Predicates Scoot... In this Scoot students will determine the simple/complete subject and predicate of sentences taken from the novel "Number the Stars" by Lois Lowry.
2. Declarative, Interrogative, Exclamatory, or Imperative... In this Scoot students will identify sentences from the novel "Number the Stars" as being declarative, interrogative, exclamatory, or imperative.
ZAP! is a fun and engaging way to have students practice any kind of skill from adding and subtracting to identifying fact and opinion statements. All that's needed is a Pringle's type can and one of the following packets.
1. Parts of Speech... Given a word from the novel "Number the Stars" students will identify it as a noun, verb, adjective, or adverb.
2. Prepositional Phrases... Students will identify the prepositional phrase in a sentence taken from "Number the Stars."
