This is great review for Chapter 1 which also focuses on some interesting cross cultural and social conflicts such as the cultural clash between traditional Indian animism and Christianity, the love-hate relationship for the colonial rulers, as well as poverty and racism. My kids really liked it and it helped them to get a handle on some important cultural and social themes which are prevalent throughout the story.

Again I think your class will enjoy and learn from this comprehensive instructional packet.
