Product Description
Fabulous Chapter 5 of Fitzgerald's fantastic The Great Gatsby!

This is an activity that I have students complete when reading
Chapter 5 of The Great Gatsby.

It also serves as an excellent class discussion guide.

There are 5 pages with 31 numbered questions (with questions within the questions, the total is 40).

The questions require

---synthesis, and

Many of the questions require students to refer to and interpret excerpts from the test of which there are 9.

The topics are include
----Gatsby's preparation to reunite with Daisy,
----their initial awkwardness,
----the symbolism throughout the chapter,
----the tour of Gatsby's mansion,
----Nick's observations about the changes in Gatsby,
----diction, and
----speculation about the couple's potential relationship.

There are three relevant graphics.

I use a clear font and allow space for students' responses.

Thank you for consideration of this product.

Since Nick is our narrator, we can only guess what goes on between Daisy and Gatsby when he allows them some privacy.
This activity makes the student a narrator and has him create that scene.
My kids have a lot of fun with it, and it serves as an excellent characterization study.
