Free Downloadable Discussion Guide and Activity Inspired by The World According to Humphrey
by Alana Pedalino
Every time Humphrey—Room 26’s inquisitive pet hamster—stays overnight with someone, he learns details about their life that nobody else knows about…and does his fair share of meddling too!
After reading The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. Birney with your students, encourage them to explore Humphrey’s perspective using the prompts in this free discussion guide. You’ll find thoughtful questions to help your students consider points of view and make text-to-self connections.
Then download the free printable activity and share it with your class. Students can imagine their “One Saturday with Humphrey” and write about what they would do with the charming class pet if they took Humphrey home for the weekend!
