Product Description
The Giver by Lois Lowry – Complete Novel Study with Questions, Vocab, and Activities

This 86 Page Giver Novel Study Package provides students with everything they need to complete a comprehensive novel study on The Giver by Lois Lowry. Very little teacher prep is required to teach this Giver unit – simply print and teach!

Activities included in this Giver literature guide include comprehension questions, answer keys, templates, foldables, graphic organizers, and projects! There is more than enough information here for a complete Giver unit. Through these activities, students are encouraged to practice a variety of reading comprehension strategies, including visualizing, summarizing, determining importance, making connections, and asking questions.

While all of the resources included in this package can be successfully used as-is, they work great when placed into an Interactive Notebook. Interactive Notebooks are powerful tools to enable students to be creative, independent thinkers and writers. Interactive Notebooks allow students to express their ideas in unique ways, and process information presented in class. Completed Interactive Notebooks become valuable study tools for students to reflect back on, and are great as a record of student progress over time.

This creative and engaging package includes the following:

Reader’s Notebook Setup Information: Several pages of information on the benefits of Reader’s Notebooks. Detailed information on how to set up a Reader’s Notebook for the unit is also included. However, you do not need to do this unit as a Reader’s Notebook. It can easily be done as a traditional Novel Study – it is up to you!

Character Compare and Contrast: Two different Venn Diagram style graphic organizers, comparing and contrasting different characters from the novel

Going Through Their Head: A graphic organizer for students to imagine themselves as Jonas during his escape at the end of the novel. Students illustrate and describe what was going through his head.

The Giver Graphic Organizer Set: A variety of different graphic organizers, for use with the novel. Different creative organizers to practice point of view, summarizing, questioning, making connections, finding key events using text evidence, visualizing, and more are included!
