Tunnel Through Time. Lester de Rey. Novel Study.
Tunnel Through Time is a great science fiction novel that mixes fact with fiction in a way that fascinates adventure loving boys and hooks them into reading. Written by American science fiction writer Lester de Rey, it is a time travel adventure back to the Age of Dinosaurs. It is a wonderful opportunity to integrate science into the English classroom. This quality novel study provides teacher notes and includes a synopsis for each chapter, a pre-reading activity, vocabulary and thought provoking questions for each chapter. There are novel activities included for setting, character relationships and plot outline. An answer key is provided. I have taught this novel several times and it is always well received by students. The package would also work well as an independent novel study. The appropriate grade level is 4 to 6.
