This study guide by Sabrina Justison will enhance your child’s understanding and enjoyment of Newbery Medal winner Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien. It includes vocabulary, comprehension questions for each chapter, and Going Deeper questions for more mature students. The book and study guide are geared to 3rd through 8th grade and can be adjusted for different age groups.
For younger children, the comprehension questions for each chapter help them maintain focus on the plot line, keep characters straight in their minds, and anticipate possible twists and turns in the story.
For older students (6th-8th graders, perhaps), this book offers a great introduction to the concept of PERSPECTIVE. Going Deeper questions help them note the varying literal perspectives in the story (visually speaking), the different points of view of different characters, and the developing and changing perspectives of individual characters as the story progresses.
