Transcript of Holes - Year 8

‘you don’t want to be bitten
by a yellow-spotted lizard’ What could this
be about?
Plot? Characters?
Themes? HOLES "lake"
log cabin
hammock
scorpions
rattlesnake
lizard
holes CAMP GREEN LAKE There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. There once was a very large lake here, the largest lake in Texas. That was over a hundred years ago. Now it is just a dry, flat wasteland.

There used to be a town of Green Lake as well. The town shrivelled and dried up along with the lake, and the people who lived there.

During the summer the daytime temperature hovers around ninety-five degrees in the shade – if you can find any shade. There’s not much shade in a big dry lake.

The only trees are two old oaks on the eastern edge of the “lake.” A hammock is stretched between the two trees, and a log cabin stands behind that.

The campers are forbidden to lie in the hammock. It belongs to the Warden. The Warden owns the shade.

Out on the lake, rattlesnakes and scorpions find shade under rocks and in the holes dug by the campers. HOLES Wasteland
Shrivelled

Recovering Look in a dictionary and find the meaning of the following words: DICTIONARY SEARCH 1. Why does the narrator suggest that if someone is bitten by a
yellow-spotted lizard they might as well lie in the hammock?

2. Why did Camp Green Lake always manage to find campers
despite the terrible conditions?

3. What choices did the judge give Stanley? To have a good understanding of the descriptive techniques the writer uses LEARNING OBJECTIVE What is inference? 1) Find the word 'inference' in the dictionary.

2) Write in your own words what it means. To infer something (or, make an inference) is to figure something out, or at least make a guess about something.

Example:
If someone bursts into tears and leaves the room, you could infer that something has upset them. You might even know what it is. What are three reasons you could infer that 'Camp Green lake' is not fun for campers? 1) Yellow spotted lizard are dangerous
2) It is too hot - 95 degrees in the shade
3) Campers have to dig holes everyday
4) Campers not really given a choice to be there
-the alternative is prison. What one reason can you infer
that the Warden is not nice to the campers?
