This resource includes an activity and a quiz on 10 vocabulary words from chapters 1 and 2 of The Outsiders.
The Vocabulary Search activity can be completed alone or in small groups. I usually start by handing out the graphic organizer and pronouncing the words for and with the students (since some are a little tricky!).
Then, I hand out sets of the ten vocab cards, which include the definitions and page numbers where the vocabulary word can be found. Students search through the novel, looking for and discovering the use of the word in context.
Students write the definition on their graphic organizer and then come up with a sentence using the vocabulary word in a way that is related to a character and/or event in the novel.
I've also included a short quiz on the correct use of the vocabulary words in sentences.
