This download contains a workbook that covers vocabulary terms fromEdgar Allen Poe's short story, The Pit and the Pendulum. Thirty words have been selected from the text.The students are tasked with defining each vocabulary term, identifying the part of speech of the vocabulary term, and writing a synonym and antonym for the vocabulary term. Detailed instructions and an optional extra credit assignment have been included. I also included a blank vocabulary page that YOU can customize with any additional words that you would like to assign from the novel.
This workbook is a great activity to use in a group setting or as an individual assignment. I used this as a group activity for a fun Halloween activity!
***Many of my students found these words to be helpful when studying for the SAT and ACT also
