Suzanne Buras created these activities for her gifted 5th graders because she could not find much “out there” on the novel. All activities can easily be adapted for lower or upper grades.
The Common Core Curriculum ELA Standards that are addressed through these activities cover a broad spectrum. You will find that many, even most, of the standards are touched on and explored.
There are 19 activities, some with multiple parts. The activities are designed to be thought-provoking and to take your readers deeper into the story and all of its beauty and challenges.
Some of the activities include: Vocabulary and Comprehension/ Thought Questions for each of the 8 parts in the novel, Intangible Questions, Story Elements Map, Precepts Essays, Research Projects, Debate, Newspaper, Point of View, a Novel Song, and many more!
