This The Wild Robot Novel Study resource is a comprehension, discussion, and activity guide to accompany the novel The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. This is an exciting and intriguing novel for middle to upper primary because of its themes of perseverance, adaptability, kindness, and friendship.
Our The Wild Robot Novel Study has been split up into sections for the purposes of this resource. Each section varies in size due to the number of pages and the nature of the content. Some sections call for more reflection and discussion than others.
For each section of the novel study, there are:
  • Reading comprehension questions,
  • Discussion questions for oral language development in the classroom, designed to be used with pairs or small groups of students.
  • Weblinks and QR codes for students to find out more about the content discussed
  • Many creative activity choices (including digital and non-digital options) 
  • A Keep the Quote section.
  • The Keep the Quote’s are a collection of quotes from the novel that can be cut out and ‘kept’ in an exercise book or notebook. These quotes can then be used to explore the deeper meanings and inferences further, used to make text-to-text or text-to-self connections, illustrated creatively, or another purpose of the teacher’s choosing.

Please note: To use this novel study, you will need at least one copy of the novel, The Wild Robot, by Peter Brown.
