Product Description
“Terry Fox: A Canadian Hero” includes 2 reading passages and nine activities will work well in an English Language Arts class as well as Social Studies.

Included in this package are:
2-one page reading texts of over 500 words detailing Terry’s life and his legacy.
Two activities designed for each of the texts and a third activity that requires both texts be read.
Activities 1 and 2 – “Memory Challenge”: putting details back in order and supplying missing words or phrases in Part 1; Synonym Search - students replace words and phrases from Part 1 with their own;
Activities 3 and 4 – “IMHO” – students are asked to express their opinions on details in Part 2; students compare how Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope might be handled by today's media to how it was covered in 1980;
Activity 5 (for both texts) – “Fast Facts” – students choose what they believe are the most important facts in both texts and explain why;

Other activities:
A creative writing assignment in which students write a diary entry that Terry might have written;
“Remembering Terry” – students design their own interview questions and then interview and record the answers of someone who remembers Terry’s Marathon of Hope;
"Terry Fox in Words" - students brainstorm for adjectives that begin with the first letters of Terry's name and write sentences about him using those adjectives; and
