Holes Activity Book

This attractive booklet of worksheets offers fun and exciting tasks for every chapter of the novel Holes. This is an invaluable tool for anyone teaching the novel. Each chapterís activities are presented with appealing fonts and pictures relevant to the novelís themes, whilst a brief commentary on some of the more difficult tasks is included for teachers who are not so familiar with the novel.

The booklet features a huge array of tasks, which vary from comprehension questions to media activities, and creative writing projects to challenging quizzes. The worksheets maintain a level of differentiation by presenting a more challenging aspect of work at the end of each chapterís activities, thus offering the classroom teacher that all-important extension activity for the more able of pupils.

Whether you are a supply teacher tackling the novel for a first time, or if you are looking for some extra activities to incorporate into lesson planning, or whether you simply require a booklet for lesson-absent studying, this booklet will provide you with hours of engaging tasks.
