The Giver - Multiple Choice Quiz + Answer Key ~ Chapter by Chapter

(1)
A multiple-choice quiz for the book, 'The Giver' by Lois Lowry. Each Chapter has about five questions to test students' recall and basic comprehension. This resource is comprised of four parts: 1) The test questions, listed by chapter, with about five questions per chapter, and three possible answers for each (a, b, or c). 2) A student answer sheet (fill in the blanks) 3) A teacher answer key (blanks filled in) 4) A regular teacher answer key The questions and answers are (hopefully!) unambiguous, i.e. no trick questions. You may also wish to divide the test into three parts (Chapters 1 - 7; 8 - 17; and 18 - 23) if you think it is too much for students to recall in one sitting. You know your students; use your judgement.

Halloween Jigsaw Reading Activity

(0)
This is a fun reading activity comparing the similar though distinct celebrations of Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Day of the Dead, and Hungry Ghost Festival. Students read about these holidays in small groups before returning to their "home-groups" to consolidate information, and then finally coming together as a class check their findings. - Targeted to grade 5 - 7 - Common Core Aligned ***Resource contains:*** - Four reading comprehension passages (each a brief overview of the way Halloween, Guy Fawkes Night, Day of the Dead, and The Hungry Ghost Festival is celebrated). - A “jigsaw” worksheet where students can record their answers. - A PowerPoint presentation displaying sample answers to the information required in the jigsaw reading worksheet (in ppt, pptx, and pdf forms). - Detailed instructions ALTERNATIVE: This activity could be completed alone or in pairs, just by giving the students every reading. It wouldn’t be as much fun, though.
