A must-have 60-page resource for instructing with Sharon Creech's Newbery Award winning novel, Walk Two Moons. 50 text dependent questions for the entire novel as well as over 20 additional activities that require students to use text evidence to support their opinions, answers, and ideas.
BEWARE! NO ANSWER KEY INCLUDED! This is due to the fact that most answers can vary based on individual student response. Also, it is my professional opinion that you should be reading this novel alongside your students, or have already read the novel, in order to gauge if student responses are accurate.
