This novel study of The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate includes the following:
Character Studies of the following characters:
Drawing Activities: Students can draw and design Ivan's domain, the Big Top Mall billboard, a Free Ruby! sign and an example of what Ivan's artwork may have looked like.
Writing Activities: Writing prompts that help students make text-to-self connections.
Graphic Organizers: Students will compare and contrast characters and consider the perspectives of different characters.
Jot Journal: The jot journal includes a variety of journal pages for students to draw or write about the book. I give students jot journals and instruct them to jot down what they are thinking as I am reading the novel out loud. It could also be used for students to jot down what they are thinking after students read sections of the book.
