Sign of the Beaver - Pre-Reading

We started our novel Sign of the Beaver yesterday with a pre-reading activity.  I read the excerpt from the back of the novel to give the students an idea of what the novel would be about.  Then I passed out and we discussed the pre-reading activity, which you can download from here.

Some of the pictures the students drew were hilarious and I just had to share a few...


  1. Hi!
    Every year when I teach that novel, someone says, "Why is it called Sign of the Beaver if there is a BEAR on the front?" EVERY year!

  2. Hi -

    I just click on the picture and just drag it to where I want it to go. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Haven't figured out why yet. Thanks for joining the 3-6 linky party!
