Book Activities for The Deep End by Jenna Guilluame
A young adult romance novel this story follows Rosie’s quest to overcome the humiliation of not being able to swim at her school swimming carnival and being assisted out of the pool. With the help of Jake Tran, the best swimmer (and hottest boy) in her year, Susie overcomes her inability to swim and in doing so, helps Jake overcome his own issues.
A light easy to read book perfect for students in early high school, we have created just 3 activities for this book. One is a recipe for Fried Rice which Susie and Jake both cook in their Food Tech class, the second is a match the swimmer to their stroke game and the final fun activity is a find-a-word of swimming terms.

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.
