Product Description
This is an engaging activity to use as a comprehension check, discussion guide, or study reference. Assess students' recall and understanding, while encouraging their analysis and speculation.

Nick has been fascinated with his neighbor Mr. Gatsby
since his arrival in West Egg.

Chapter 4 begins the friendship between the two men and reveals to the reader even more of Gatsby's fabulousness!

This The Great Gatsby Chapter 4 resource is a series of activities requiring students to

----identify character traits of party-goers,

----speculate about Gatsby and Wolfsheim, and

----examine certain plot elements in

Chapter 4 of Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby.

The first activity is a chart on which students must record a description of a given party-goer and identify him or her as an East-egger or West-egger.

They must then determine a detectable difference between each group of people.

The next activity provides students with Gatsby traits
(wealthy, insecure, notorious, etc. )

They must provide a quote and analysis to show Gatsby as possessing this trait.

What follows is 25 comprehension and analysis questions about the conversation the men have on their way into the city, and Gatsby's hope that
Nick will connect him with Daisy.

Another activity is a graphic organizer with a gangster wolf web where students identify traits that illustrate that WOLFsheim is appropriately named.

The final activity is a graphic of a daisy.

Students are asked to write an aspect of Daisy's romantic past on the petals and her heartaches on the raindrops.

I provide space for student responses.

Clear font.

Attractive graphics.


I have included a detailed key.
