"The Last Dog" by Katherine Paterson is a great short Science Fiction Story.

Included in this is a setting map that covers the technology inside the dome, the environment our the dome (what the dome dwellers believe, Life inside the Dome, & Clothing & Culture. Each topic has 3 lines for students to fill in.

I have also included a chart which includes Beliefs of the Dome Dwellers vs. Brock's Discoveries on his foray outside the dome. Students have to fill in what the dome dwellers believe and provide evidence and then provide an argument on what Brock has discovered and then provide a piece of evidence.

This is a great group activity because it requires students to really dig into the text.

I have also provided a KEY to both activities; However answers CAN vary. They key can be used a guide.

Enjoy!
