Activities, Amusement, and Study Checkup for Homeschool Students and Teachers
Why is 1777 meaningful today? This book's characters are the same "smart kid," "neighborhood bully," and "girl next door" that exist today. Plus, they have the same worries: pandemic and parents!
The 106-page color.pdf used to be clickable, along with the teacher's key right here! Well, well, well! Agence France asked me to remove a picture from the TG, which apparently would take $750 to buy the rights for. (It was 2 sheep.) I will put the TG back up (minus the picture), but only if I receive a personal email requesting it. Just checking whether anyone is interested. (BTW: enough interesting additional material to amuse adults!) Send to: millicent_hughes@Yahoo.com
In this study guide you'll find: One paragraph precis of each chapter (for a teacher who forgot to read it) Historical timeline for events outside of those in the book Actual events in Danbury at same time as the chapter title (Did you notice chapter titles refer to time of the real-life action?) Short tests of reading comprehension A quotation to explain Three questions about motivation or which relate the book's action to present-day happenings and conditions
Last item: a section called "Fun Stuff," which may or may not be fun!
