Freak The Mighty Assignment Create A Dictionary - At Christmas in the novel Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick, Freak gives Max a home-made dictionary with his definitions. You can use this moment to encourage students to create their own dictionary entries of their favorite words with creative definitions like the ones Freak uses. Students will even have a chance to show off their artistic side by making illustrations to accompany each dictionary entry.

Included In This Freak The Mighty Assignment:

➡️ Freak The Mighty Dictionary Template: Use this one-page dictionary template for students to write 5 words of their choice and come up with creative definitions. A small space is also provided for students to draw an illustration that relates to each word. Students are encouraged to be funny, clever, and imaginative with their definitions. After students complete the activity, try having students volunteer to share their words and definitions with the class!
