This is based on the wonderful book - The One and Only Ivan - by Katherine Applegate. I made an activity for each of what I thought were the main ideas or important points that the students should get (page lengths vary by idea and activity). The activities include text-based questions, sequencing, main idea and details, characterization, compare and contrast, cause and effect, writing to text, author's purpose and point of view.
The actual activites are included on 32 pages. There is a common core rubric that is 4 pages and a 9 page answer key.
Also included - Ivan bookmarks. You can copy those for free in the preview. Thanks for looking!
This story is one that should be shared with all ages. It is a beautiful and touching story of friendship. (There is a lot of information on the internet about the real Ivan to use before or after you read the story).
Being a gorilla is not as easy as it looks!
*note: I used page numbers based on the hard cover book. The page numbers probably won't match up with the E-book.
