Grade 6 In-class Task Sheet
What goes around, comes around: how does
what we do today affect tomorrow?
Have a minute to think about how the guiding question relates to our novel.
You will view a series of images related to themes, characters, and events in our novel. You need to analyze how these images relate to the ideas presented by our Guiding Question.
There are three images. There will be three types of responses.
1) Observation- Identify what we are looking at. Who or what is the image of? - Simple, but try to be detailed (Criteria A).
2) Analytical- Identify the image in terms of What goes around, comes around: how does
what we do today affect tomorrow? Identify what significance these individuals or items have had in the narrative (story). More so, identify how they have had an important role in shaping the present and future of the characters in the novel.
3) Creative- Write a first person narrative from one of the characters that you feel directly relate to this image. Personal narratives are told in the first person, so you will use words like “I” and “me”. It is much like a journal. Tell us what they are thinking. Tell us what they might be worried, excited, or happy about.
***All of these responses will be shared on the “Hole” Voicethread. You need to be sure that you have 1 type of response for each image and that you have responded to all three images.
