Several stories come together in a climactic battle between a witch, a bog monster, a dragon, and a powerful girl in order to save the villages from an impending volcanic eruption. The worksheets are easy to use and not too overwhelming for student comprehension. Students imagine having Luna’s magical powers and brainstorm ways they would use it. Become familiar with unfamiliar words by determining their root word. Put yourselves into the mind of the villagers to determine why they would continue to sacrifice a child each year. Identify similes and metaphors used in the chapters. Draw the map that Luna created using detailed descriptions from the chapters. Identify key vocabulary words from the novel using synonyms, antonyms and word associations. Aligned to your State Standards and written to Bloom's Taxonomy, our worksheets incorporate a variety of scaffolding strategies along with additional crossword, word search, comprehension quiz and answer key. About the Novel: The Girl Who Drank the Moon follows the tale of Luna who must quickly overcome the obstacles that were hidden from her in order to save the ones she loves. In the Protectorate village, each year the Elders sacrifice a newborn baby to the witch who lives in the forest. This sacrifice ensures the Protectorate’s safety for another year. What the villagers don’t know, is that there is no witch, at least not an evil one living in the forest. Not knowing why these babies are left to die, the witch Xan finds them and takes them to nearby villages to be raised. To sustain them on this journey, Xan feeds the babies starlight. One year, Xan mistakenly feeds the baby moonlight, which fills the child with magic. Xan decides to raise the girl herself in order to keep those around her safe from her magic. She names the child Luna. The story follows Luna as she grows and discovers her magic, while also coming head-to-head with the real evil of the forest.
