Procedure

First, you will copy the worksheet. After that, you will explain about Acronyms and give them examples such as using their first names and having them pick words that begin with each letter of their first names. For example: John = J = jolly O = organized H = hero N = neat. However, the words they choose for each letter of the characters should relate to the specific character.

Worksheet

Directions: Write words that relate to the letters of the characters. You will need to look up the characters in The Hound of the Baskervilles so you can locate some information about each character. If you cannot locate something about the character, you can leave it blank. To help you get started, I have given you the first letter and word.
