1. What do you predict will happen between
Patrick and Omri?
Possible Answer: I predict that the friendship between
the two will suffer. They will have disagreements and many
differences of opinions.
2. Patrick wants to change "loads of things
to life". What might be some consequences if this happens?
Possible Answer: A consequence that I believe will happen is that
there may be a war between the cowboys and the Indians.
3. If you were Omri, would you get Little Bear a
wife? Give reasons for your answer.
Possible Answer: It would be wrong for Omri to get a wife for Little
Bear. He told him he had a wife who died. He should respect
Little Bear's feelings.
4. Bows and arrows have been used for
approximately 3,000 years. Research the many kinds of bows and
write a report about their advantages and disadvantages from long ago to
the present time.
Possible Answer: Should include factual information about the Welsh
or English Long Bow. Accuracy, materials used, size, etc.
5. Imagine that other plastic toys have come to
life in the cupboard in Omnri's room. What do you think will
happen? What might the characters say to each other?
Possible Answer: If the plastic army soldiers came to life it
could be a very dangerous situation for everyone, including Omri.
A war may break out in his bedroom and many injuries could occur.
The soldiers would be able to communicate among themselves because they
speak the same language. They would say things like, "Let's
capture that Indian!" and "We will put him in
prison." Little Bear would say to himself, "I'm going to
scalp the white men."
