Comprehension & Writing Activity - "Taking a Break"

By Connie Casserly
Grades 6-12

Comprehension & Writing Activity - "Taking a Break"

This FREE activity is great for an end of the year recap to assess Middle and High School students' comprehension, understanding, and analytic skills of the material that they read. Teachers might also choose to use this comprehension, critical thinking, and writing activity any time during the year when students dream of a vacation.

For this activity, students are going on a dream vacation. To keep them company on this trip, they ask three characters from books that they have read for school assignments that year to go on the trip with them. Who will they take? Why them? Where will they go? How will these people help them have a perfect trip? These are the questions they will address as they relate their vacation plans.

This Middle and High School Language Arts Lesson Plan offers students another opportunity to show their understanding of character.

When a vacation is not on the school schedule, ask students to imagine a dream vacation and to invite fictional travel companions.

Happy Teaching,
