Activity Overview


Vocabulary development is always helpful as students work to comprehend stories. Students can use context clues to determine the meaning of many of the words, but a more in-depth look at vocabulary is a valuable activity for any book. Students can use a spider map or a traditional storyboard to illustrate words using context clues, definitions, and depictions scenes the words are used in.
