The 7th and 8th graders recently read the story Rikki-Tikki-Tavi by Rudyard Kipling. We discussed each character in depth. The students learned all five elements of a plot, and then they worked in groups to answer some thought provoking questions. We had a nice discussion in each class. As an assessment activity, the students worked on their own plot diagrams.
Did any of the characters in Rikki-Tikki-Tavi show a “random act of kindness”? Can you relate to any of the characters? If so, why?
