A fun and engaging novel study to accompany I SURVIVED The Sinking of the Titanic, 1912 by Lauren Tarshis. A comprehension check with questions and a vocabulary study are included with each section. Book is divided into 5 sections so students can study 3 short chapters a time. ANSWER KEY is included!
For the vocabulary study, each vocabulary word has the page number where it was found in the book, so students can use context clues to help them with the word’s definition. Context clues from the book are also indicated on each page to take the guess work out for students.
The comprehension check has questions for students to make inferences, evaluate, analyze, predict, and recall information.
There is a novel test at the end if you choose to assess your students’ learning.
In addition, there are some fun extension activities to get students writing and researching!
Extra activities are:
-Main Character Description– students indicate key character traits of the main character and write a character description paragraph.
-Compare & Contrast– students compare and contrast themselves to the main character of the story.
-An Interview- students put themselves in the main characters’ shoes as they are interviewed about their experience with the story events!
-Research/Facts- an organizer for students to record facts and details of the real event when doing their own research.
-Writing Template– this can be used any way you choose! Students can write a story summary, an additional story, write some paragraphs about their research, or anything else!
