Product Description
This bundle is a fun activity for conducting pre-reading research with the novel That Was Then, This is Now.

Each student receives a piece of the pre-reading quilt. Each piece asks guiding questions to spark curiosity about a topic that will be relevant to the novel. Each student will research and decorate his/her piece of the quilt with information, symbolism, art, and color. Students come together and share their pieces and what they have learned to establish prior-knowledge.

I have pictures of this being implemented in my classroom on my Twitter account @MsBetzLA8 if you want to see them working on this project.

At the end, I have students cut their pieces and we glue them on a massive quilt that hangs in our room while reading the novel.
