    I did this with a group of sixth graders several years back and they loved it!

    As an above poster said, there aren't very precise descriptions of the minor characters. I had the kids look through magazines and find pictures of what they think the characters looked like and write the descriptions next to them, they created a detective's clue book with the descriptions.

    Next, they took a huge sheet of bulletin board paper and created a map of Sunset Towers, who lives where, etc. They really got into this activity.

    I also used this book as an opportunity to use predicting, but elaborated to explain how to check and correct predictions if your initial predictions were incorrect, simple T chart is what I used.

    Long ago in the mailbox magazine was a matrix of all the characters and you had to write clues for each character, I can check and see if I have that at school.

    You picked an excellent book, good luck!!
