Chapter by Chapter Activities

In addition to the vocabulary bookmarks and geography map described below, the student has seventeen pages of chapter by chapter activities. These activities include:

Reading Comprehension Questions

These multiple choice questions do more than validate that the student read the chapter. The questions focus students' attention on the events and details that are most important for grasping the themes and messages of the story.

Discussion Topics

These topics can be explored together, used as a points to ponder discussion, or serve as writing prompts.

Matching and Ordering

These quick activities underscore details about characters and events in the chapters.

Literary Elements

Students' understanding of literature is enhanced by questions that tie the plot to literary elements. The literary elements underscored in this unit study include:
  • Setting
  • Chacter Development
  • Character Traits
  • Type of Plots
  • Points of View
  • Anthropomorphism
  • Author's World View
  • Foreshadowing
  • Inferences
  • Alliteration
  • Juxtaposition

Vocabulary Words

Our popular vocabulary bookmarks list words by chapter and in the order they appear in the text. Definitions are listed by the words in order to assist the students' comprehension of the text. (Does anyone really believe students stop reading to go look the words up in a dictionary?)

Our vocabulary lists make great book markers as well. Improving the students' reading comprehension and saving the book from folded corners; two benefits in one!

Other Areas of Study

Literature provides a great opportunity to delve into other areas of study introduced by the story. Opportunities are presented in the Call of the Wild Unit Study to explore:
  • Klondike Gold Rush
  • Evolution and Social Darwinism
  • Aurora Borealis
  • Iditrod Trail
  • Scientific Classification of dogs and wolves
