Frindle - Word Detective (Word Inventions)

3-page middle school literature game set by Steve Denny


This activity encourages students to become word inventors. Like Nick Allen in the book Frindle, they will get to recapture his creative experience. Students will be provided a list of foods and challenged to create a new word for each food that captures the taste, spirit, or essence of the original word. Examples are provided. The unit culminates with an activity that lets students use their own newly created vocabulary to invent a new recipe.
The recipe activity includes an exciting and challenging twist. Like Nick's quest for better food in the cafeteria, students will try to create foods even Nick would be proud of.
