The Pearl by John Steinbeck Chapter 2 Activity Packet
This is a very comprehensive bundle of instructional resources and activities related to Chapter 2 of John Steinbeck’s classic novel, the Pearl. I think your students will enjoy this bundle which includes.
1) Chapter 2 Scavenger hunt for information: This is a 29 question active reading scavenger hunt where students actively hunt for information while they read. These scavenger hunts are meant to enhance enjoyment and check for understanding. They are always a hit with my high school kids. Answer sheets are included.
2) Chapter 2 Word Detective/Word Attack vocabulary activity.
Students act as vocabulary detectives using their word attack skills to determine the meaning, of new words in context using actual dialogues and narration from the story. They are also asked to provide synonyms and identify parts of speech. There are also questions related to figurative language and word variation. Answer sheets are again included.
3) The Pearl Chapter 1 + 2 Crossword: A crossword puzzle related to characters, events, vocabulary, and figurative language in chapters 1 +2.
Again I think your class will enjoy and learn from this comprehensive instructional packet.
