PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

"The Elephant's Child" by Rudyard Kipling is the classic short story about how the elephant got his long nose. It is challenging text full of humor that students will enjoy.

I have sectioned the story into blocks with side-by-side questions for close reading and annotating as well.

Questioning the text is designed to lead students to think critically about the text.

Skills addressed:
1. Purpose of dialogue
2. Figurative language and its effect
3. Vocabulary analysis
4. Using text to support answers (text evidence)
5. Analyzing use of humor
6. Sound techniques with words (alliteration, rhyme)
7. Comparing character responses
8. Defending theme
9. A constructed response prompt
Answer key is included.
