Design a nativity tableau in the style of that of the Dos Reis sisters. Have the students bring in small figurines and photos from magazines and assemble them in groups. Later, have each group present their tableau to the class.
Make a word search with key words, dates, people, events, and places in the novel. Give them out to the students for a brief, fun activity during their study of the novel.
Write down events from the book, general or specific. Cut the paper into strips with each event separate, and have the students draw them out of a hat. Then draw a long line on the chalkboard. Have the students come up, one by one, and place their event where they think it should be. As a class, go over the timeline and discuss any errors/disagreements.
