Activity Overview


This activity, involving the central idea, or main idea, of the novel, will demonstrate students’ comprehension of the text and can be displayed through three or more events.

The first substantial event is when Milo expresses his boredom and disinterest with everything in the world. Here, the reader begins to infer that something will happen to Milo to stop him from being bored.

Next, Milo is taken to The Lands Beyond, where he goes from one adventure to the next. Through these experiences, Milo realizes there is value in learning, reading, and seeing things around him.

In the end, Milo has come full circle; he is back in his room thinking that everything is boring. However, this feeling is short lived. He receives a letter from The Lands Beyond, encouraging him to find an adventure of his own.
