This is a breakout activity that you might use either half way through the novel or after you've completed it. Although the book is divided into two sections, I like to use the breakout after chapter 14, or before the start of the trial as a "break" from reading.

Activities include: conflicts, vocabulary in context, key quotations, themes, use of transitions, and figurative language.

It is NOT digital, but could be made so with some alterations. You might also just use the activities independently. However, I like using it by printing out 6 copies of each activity, putting them each in a manila envelope, and having groups work together to glean the answers. You could also set it up as stations if you prefer.

This activity is on a Google doc.
