PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry is an incredible story set in Nazi-occupied Denmark during World War 2. The story's main character, Annemarie, demonstrates great courage in the face of adversity and a changing world.

This MEGA packet is the perfect supplement to a study of the book, whether you're doing it as a whole-class, a small group (i.e. reading groups or literature circles), or as an individual project. It includes activities for before, during, and after reading that can serve as comprehension assessment, writing prompts, and/or valuable practice determining different story elements.

***Note: this is not a typical packet, filled with pages of multiple-choice questions. With my activities, I seek to stimulate higher-level thinking through graphic organizers, open-ended charts and questions, and character study. Because of this, not all pages have scripted answer keys, because the answers will vary based on the student, the class, and the depth of discussion.
