I have used this book as a read aloud. The student packet accompanies the read aloud. There is a book trailer, pre-reading activities, comprehension questions, extension activities, culminating extended response writing pieces, and vocabulary. The questions are simply listed since the chapters are so short. This is a 20 page document, filled with engaging activities and questions to help prepare students for the short response questions on a state assessment.
