2.    Literary Elements Ch. 8-15 

SETTING:  The rats lived in a modern house. Inside the house there was first an empty room and then you go and and there is a big huge entrance hall. There were loads of rats who lived in it and worked.

 

PLOT:  The most important event that happened in chapters 8-15 was when Mrs. Frisby got captured. Mr Fitzgibbons son captured her and put her in a cage. This was really important in the story because it meant she couldn't get back to her children. Justin saved her because he was trained and super intelligent.

 

CHARACTERS:  The character in the book most like me is the cat because it is very lazy. When they put medicine in his food and he was tired and could not chase mice, he was like me.

 

AUTHORS LANGUAGE:  When Justin took the lights from the tree it was like picking grapes from a vine.

 

 

 

  

3.    Discussion Questions-Ch. 22-28 

 

 

 

1. Mrs Frisby wanted to put sleeping powder in Dragons bowl because she wanted the rats to work at helping her to move house.  

 

 

2.If I was Mrs Frisby I'd try to bash the cage up. If that didn't work, i'd jump up and down until the cage fell on the ground. Hopefully when the cage hit the ground the doors would swing open.   

   

 

   

3.I think of thorn valley with mountains and behind it is a great view. Its got lots of thorns and so no one can trespass except animals.

 

 

   

4. I think it was Mr Fitzgibbons who killed the rats in their house and not the scientists. He killed them because he found out they wee stealing stuff and he hated them.

  

  

 

  

5. I think the rats will be successful when they move to thorn valley. It will be calm and peaceful and they won't have any regrets or any problems. They will have their own farm and grow their own crops.

 

6. The rats tried to trick the exterminators by splitting up into 3 groups and going from tree to tree back and forth so there looked like there were more rats. 

 

 

  

4.    Project Area- Chapters 22-28

Using your imagination, draw an advertisement convincing mice to move to Thorn Valley. See my paper!
