This is a packet of several worksheets to go along with The Instructions and Chapter 1 of The City of Ember. Unlike many other vocabulary worksheets, these pages encourage the student to move beyond memorizing definitions. The student will first learn the definition; then he/she will move to a higher level of thinking by connecting the vocabulary word to a synonym that may also be a new vocabulary word. The student will then get practice answering several types of test questions, including True/False; Fill in the Blank; and Inference. The last worksheet asks the student to think about the vocabulary words in various contexts by exploring and analyzing shades of meaning.
