Activity 8

Congratulations on reading your next Lexile book.

Your task: What is the setting for your book? How do you know this. Try to include a quote from the text if possible. Your book may have more than one main setting.

If you choose a quote from the book, put the quote in quotation marks (eg “The house was old and needed a new coat of paint”). If possible, include the page number of the quote.

You should also include your name, the name of the book, author and its lexile score.



Here is an example of the main settings from ‘Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone’, as well as a description.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
By JK Rowling
Lexile- 880

By Mr Simojoki

Setting One: Dursley’s House: This is the house that Harry was placed in after the death of his mum and dad. It is a normal, neat house, but not a nice house for Harry to live in. He had to live in “a cupboard under the stairs”.

Setting Two: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: This is the school in which Harry learns how to become a wizard. The school is on top of a mountain on the side of a lake.

“There were a hundred and forty-two staircases at Hogwarts: wide, sweeping ones, narrow, rickety ones; some that led somewhere different on a Friday; some with a vanishing step halfway up that you had to remember to jump.”

The halls are full of classrooms, secret corridors, and trapdoors, and some parts of the castle are even forbidden.
