Book Activities for Aster's Good, Right Things by Kate Gordon
Winner of the CBCA 2021 Book of the Year for Younger Readers this is the story of eleven-year-old Aster and the good, right things she must do every day. It is a story of the friendship between Aster and Xavier, of belonging and acceptance. Yet it is also a story about mental health and the challenges many children face in today’s society.
We have created 5 activities for this book designed for students from Years 5 to 8. They include how to draw a bunny rabbit like Hollyhock or Daenerys; exploring the good, right deeds Aster does; a fun flower find-a-word; a comprehension about depression and a book summary using the good, right deeds at the start of each chapter.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
