Ray Bradbury's seminal novel is a perennial favourite for middle schoolers. These research tasks round out students' knowledge of some of the important symbols and references in the novel:

  • The Atomic Bomb
  • Memory
  • Phoenix
  • Railroads
  • Rivers

The tasks can be given completed during the reading, as extension work for Gifted and Talented students, or as closure to a unit of study.


Each task comprises four sections, following Bloom's taxonomy, and requires students to complete: a piece of contextual research, a close reading of a nominated passage, a free-form writing at length, and a creative piece.
