The "Adventure Guide" is designed to help parents, teachers, and students discover and analyze Biblical themes and literature concepts while reading "Little Pilgrim's Progress." Partnering with the "Adventure Guide" will make this already incredible allegory a reading event that your child or student will never forget.
The "Guide "breaks the novel down into 2 parts - Christian's journey and Christiana's journey. Each journey is separated into four reading sections. These reading sections include vocabulary, questions, allegorical interpretations, literature elements, Bible application, character charts and character matching. A Parent/Teacher Helps section is also included which offers detailed suggestions regarding story charts. In addition, a mapping bulletin board that can also be used as a game is included. Finally, his section will include several art and literature extensions.
Many times literature activities are more closely related to busy work and can actually become a distraction from the story. However, in the "Adventure Guide" activities and story extensions are meaningful and encourage further examination of story characters, themes, and symbolism. A brief biography of John Bunyan is also included to aide in discussion about the original classic, "Pilgrim's Progress."
