Homeschooling With Felicity Merriman: Changes For Felicity Discussion Questions

Below you will find a list of discussion questions that we used while reading Changes For Felicity during our Felicity Unit. If you can think of any other questions to add to the list please leave a comment.

Changes For Felicity Discussion Questions

1. Why do you think Loyalists were being arrested in Virginia? Do you feel it was right? Why or why not?

2. What do you think about how Mr. Nye ended up? Do you think there was a reason for his earlier behavior? Do you think people can change? Why did Jiggy Nye change? (If you think that he did.)

3. A great deal happened to Felicity between her first book and her last. How do you feel she changed? What do you feel caused these changes?

4. Write a few paragraphs about how you feel Felicity's life will be in 10 years. In 20? How do you think the war would have directed her life? Where do you think she'll be living? What do you think her family life will be like?  

Remember, the above lesson is just a suggestion. You do not have to do it in the exact same way that I did. Take the things you love about it and mold it to fit your educational needs! And, as always, if you use any of our lessons in your classroom, or have an idea that I might like, please share with me! I'd love to see what you do. You can leave your message directly in the comments or send an email to Your story could be shared on the blog! 

do ask that you link back to the blog if you share this lesson plan anywhere else, or provide a link if you share any other blog/person's ideas here. I love sharing ideas and brainstorming, but please give credit where credit is due.
