This vocabulary activity is to be used with the story Boom Town by Sonia Levitin. This is a third grade (3.5) level story found in the old version of the Trophies books (language arts curriculum anthologies). It is also a literature book and can be found at this website:
The chart lists vocabulary words, the definitions, and two blank spaces for each word so students can create an example and an illustration. This was designed for third grade students! Works well as a whole group activity or small group activity.
