Holes Activity - Nicknames Creative Novel Assignment - Louis Sachar
Holes Activity Nickname Assignment is a fun and creative way to make text connections to the novel Holes by Louis Sachar. In the novel, the boys at Camp Green Lake have nicknames that relate to their personalities. Some examples include Caveman, X-Ray, Squid, Armpit, and Magnet. This has students apply this idea to their own life by giving themselves their own fitting nickname with a justification for why they made this specific choice.
