Summary: Billy is always being dared to do crazy things - but has he bitten off more than he can chew with this new dare to eat 15 worms in 15 days? And we're not talking tiny worms. We're talking the big, fat, juicy night crawlers. If he wins? Well his friend Alan has to fork over 5o dollars! Would you for $50? Good news for Billy is as he gets going, he actually starts getting hooked on worms, bad news is Alan is busy cooking up schemes to Billy will bail out of the bet.
Energy Game: Tape a name of a character from the book, on the back of a boy. Then play CHASE! The boy with the name (taped on his back) chase around other boys- if they tag them they get to ask one question about the name on their back. They are no longer "it" when they guess correctly the name. The last boy caught- now gets a new name taped on his back and he has to chase boys to to ask questions.
Hot dogs cut up in strips and microwaved... so they curl up to look like WORMS! Have an assortment of condiments so boys can fix their own plates of worms.
Activity: Watch the movie and compare and contrast the book to movie.
One thing the boys will notice from the start is there is a GIRL in the movie!
