Product Description

Includes questions for each chapter, a before reading activity, two characterization activities, two context clues activities, two inferencing activities, and a review card game. Questions are text dependent and written specifically for this novel.

There is one page of text dependent questions for each of the 17 chapters of Lois Lowry's novel, Number the Stars. Each one has three characterization questions, two context clues questions, and three inferencing questions with lines for students' answers. These can be used for interactive notebook pages or for chapter assessments of these three important skills.

The prereading activity involves making inferences from chapter titles.

One characterization activity is a character map about the main character, Annemaire. The other is a characterization chart about several important characters.

The context clues activities involve locating the clues, defining words from context clues, and choosing from multiple meanings.

The inferencing activities ask students to make inferences using evidence and quotations from the story.

The I Have . . .Who Has . . ? game is a fun whole class activity for reviewing details from the novel after reading.

This novel study supports a number of the Reading: Literature standards, especially those involving using text-based evidence, determining main ideas and details, using context clues, and making inferences.
