This download contains a workbook that covers vocabulary terms from each chapter of Tim O'Brien's novel, The Things They Carried. Three to six vocabulary terms have been selected for each chapter. 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. Overall, it took my students two weeks (the length of time it took us to read the novel) to complete the assignment.
***Many of my students found these words to be helpful when studying for the SAT and ACT also
