This is a set of 15 comprehension questions to go along with the book "The Boy who Harnessed the Wind" by William Kankwamba and Bryan Mealer. The story is about a boy in Malawi who teaches himself to build a windmill from junk in order to provide electricity and eventually well water for his village. These questions allow students to demonstrate their comprehension of the story. One question deals with similes and another deals with personification using figurative language from the story. The book is published by Scholastic. These "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind" no-prep Digital Boom Card comprehension question task cards can play on any web browser. Boom Cards are entirely digital and self-grading. Use them on tablets, computers, Chromebooks, and interactive whiteboards.
