This activity is a great ELA exercise for all ages, abilities, and skill levels. The great thing about this is it can be used for any piece of literature - informational text, short story, novel, etc.
Your students can use this handout to practice explaining quotations. It can also be used as a "backward" textual evidence activity. This activity will help with close reading and improve their writing.
