Today we did two review activities to help you better prepared for tomorrow’s quiz.  We started with a game of vocab bingo, which reviewed all the words that we went over for the three short stories we’ve read this tri. Then we moved on to a jeopardy game to review plot elements. The questions from the jeopardy game were:

“Harrison Bergeron”:

What handicaps does Hazel wear?

Name three of the handicaps Harrison must wear.

Who is the author of Harrison Bergeron?

“Searching for Summer”:

What were the names of the main characters?

What motivates Mr. Noakes?

What type of conflict is seen in “Searching for Summer”?

“Two Friends”:

What do the “Two Friends” want to do?

Name one of the reasons the men choose to go fishing in spite of the danger.

What is the setting of “Two Friends”?

Man vs. Man is a type of what?

After the quiz tomorrow we will begin watching Planet of the Apes as an example of a dystopia in film.
