Focusing on the environment, for this outstanding, easy to read novel by Jean Craighead George - here are Quick Quizzes for each chapter - use like exit tickets. WITH ANSWER KEYS.

Quiz styles vary - cause/effect, true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the blank, etc

See the preview for a breakdown of style and number of questions for the quizzes. Four sample quizzes are in the preview also.

The unit includes character logs for both main characters and minor ones as well. A word search for names in the novel is here, as well as vocabulary worksheets and spelling ladder puzzles. Every CCSS ELA Grades 3 to 8 includes "Spelling - age appropriate." I find the spelling ladders are a low key way of approaching spelling.

There are several activities here as well: one for a poetry extension and the other a creative illustration.

FIVE writing prompts are here (in task card format), with directions for both the teacher and the students. These are accompanied by CCSS ELA Writing alignments.
