I use this packet with my novel study of The BFG by Roald Dahl. We use the graphic organizers throughout the entire book and add to them after we read each day. The packet contains several graphic organizers/thinking maps that cover a variety of skills as well as a set of comprehension question for the end of each chapter.
The concepts covered in this packet are:
Character traits – Sophie and The BFG (Bubble Maps – with and without bubbles)
Characters and Settings – Circle Map for each
Compare/Contrast Characters – The BFG and the Other Giants (Double Bubble Map)
Figurative Language (Similes)
Summarizing – each chapter
This packet can be used on a whiteboard or projector and filled in together as a class or you can print it out and give a packet to each student or group of students.
