Literature-based Skill Building

Freak the Mighty, Chapter 15

The following are comprehension activities related to the novel Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick, chapter 15. NOTE: Keep reading fun! Choose some, but not all, the exercises for each chapter. It may be appropriate to just to complete a learning log, or to discuss activities and answers instead of writing things down. THese chapters are short -- sometimes you might just keep reading!
