This resource includes three activities students can complete after they’ve both read Rick Riordan’s Lightning Thief novel and watched the movie version. You may choose to have students complete all activities or just one! In my classroom, I make copies of all three activities and tell my students that they must complete two.
NOVEL VS. MOVIE COMPARISON
This short answer activity requires students to make written comparisons between the novel and the movie. There are also a few opinion questions included. Students must watch the entire movie before beginning this activity. Answer key is included.
BOOK, MOVIE, OR BOTH?
This activity requires students to read a list of plot events and determine whether or not these events occurred in the book, the movie, or both. Students may complete this assignment as they watch the movie or after they watch the movie. Answer key is included.
For this activity, students must inspect the cover of the novel and the DVD cover. They are asked to list similarities and differences between the two. This activity may be completed before, during, or after watching the movie. NOTE: Some book covers look different from others! No answer key included because all answers will vary depending on the book cover.
