This is a 100 page novel unit and interactive notebook for the novel The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. The activities in this interactive notebook unit have been kid-tested and found to be engaging and effective in teaching literary skills without stealing the joy of reading The Boy in Striped Pajamas.
To make the unit more "teacher-friendly", we have included photos showing how to create more “complicated” pages. The activities are Common Core related.
With interactive notebooks, students are active learners as they cut, fold, glue, and complete activities in their notebooks. These activities will require students to analyze the author’s craft and literary elements such as conflict, symbolism, irony, and setting. Each student page is followed by directions, photos, and/or an answer key.
We are extremely excited about this product! Completing novels using interactive notebooking is awesome because students are active, and they love it! Once the unit is finished, students can use the notebook as a reference. Literary terms and opportunities for analysis of these devices are provided throughout the unit. The best part is that once you purchase this unit, you can reuse it every year!
