Set in South Africa, this Novel Study for The White Giraffe by Lauren St. John has response questions for every chapter, WITH ANSWER KEYS. The questions cover a wide range of Common Core State Standards.
There are tests for both the first and second half of the book - Ch. 1 to 12, and Ch. 12 to 24,
- each two pages long
- comprising multiple choice,
- speaker identification,
- matching and short essay answers.
There is an answer KEY for both.
Common Core of State Standards ELA - RL 6,7,8 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 are covered in this unit. My check list is included.
Also - ELA W 7, 8, 9 and L 2b, 4c 5a, b
In addition, there are vocabulary and spelling worksheets, a Venn diagram for use in the early part of the novel, an illustration opportunity toward the middle, and a tri-fold RESEARCH project.
The research project has teacher directions and a two page matrix for the trifold which may be used as is, or as a sample for a different size tri-fold. I include a list of possible topics.
This made a very good read-aloud.
I also sell another of the Legend of the Animal Healer series:
The Elephant's Tale
