The Door in the Wall Literature Study Guide & Lapbook
As we continue in our homeschool journey I continue to make more printables to enrich my kids education. With Goofy entering 2nd grade in the fall it is time to start studying some great literature more in depth.
This is the first of many Literature Based Study Guides and Lapbook Combos I will be releasing.
The Door in the Wall by Marguerite De Angeli is a historical fiction, Newbery Aware winning novel. The story takes place in the Middle Ages (also known as the Dark Ages) and tells the story of a 10 year old boy’s journey to become a Page (and ultimately a knight). Unfortunately, the Black Death plague has swept over London and he faces some obstacles on his journey. With the help of Brother Luke, a monk, he will become a most unexpected hero.
This is a great read & study for anyone studying Knights or the Middle Ages in history. The story is only 100 pages and is a good read aloud for K-6th grade or for 4th-6th graders to read on their own.
The Door in the Wall Study Guide & Lapbook is 33 pages that includes:
- Story Synopsis
- Extension Ideas
- Fact or Opinion
- Similes & Metaphors
- Reading Comprehension Questions by chapter
- Lapbook (including major background topics to help student better understand the story)
