This ready-to-use, custom-made, 12-page packet is designed for teachers to use with students in grades 5-8 who have viewed the 2017 Lionsgate movie, “Wonder”, as well as having read R.J. Palacio’s book of the same title. It includes various opportunities to extend student learning via activities such as compare and contrast, persuasive writing, making connections, understanding controversy, evaluating, and discussion items. An answer key is not included as the activities will provide unique, thoughtful responses.

NOTE: this product is not a full novel study. The novel study that I created for Wonder includes this Book vs Movie section in it; if you are interested in buying both products for one price, you should click here to see that product.

I also have a novel study for R.J. Palacio's 2015 book,Auggie & Me. It gives readers three great stories (The Julian Chapter, Pluto, and Shingaling) about characters whose lives were impacted by Auggie. Click on the bold words to take a look at it.
