About the Series
The seven dragon tribes have been at war for generations, locked in an endless battle over an ancient, lost treasure. A secret movement called the Talons of Peace is determined to bring an end to the fighting, with the help of a prophecy, a foretelling that calls for great sacrifice.

Check your students answers to the quiz against this key (also available on page 2 of the PDF), or have students add up their scores themselves and then read the answers aloud to the class.
If you answered mostly A’s: You’re a MudWing
Loyal and protective, you act like an older sibling to all your friends. You don’t like to fight, and sometimes you’re afraid of your own strength, but your friends know they can rely on you for your courage. Your brown scales are thick and armored.
If you answered mostly B’s: You’re a SeaWing
Brave and outspoken, you like to see yourself as the leader of the pack. You’re always thinking up schemes and plans, and you’re no slouch in a fight. You like to dream that you’re long-lost royalty. Like a typical SeaWing, you have turquoise scales, webbed talons, and special glow-in-the-dark markings.
If you answered mostly C’s: You’re a NightWing
With your snout often stuck in a scroll, you’re the brainy dragon of the bunch. You take your lessons very seriously, and would rather rely on your mind than your claws. Even though your friends might tease you for being a bookworm, they appreciate having your insight when it counts most. You’re dark purple in color, with silver star-shaped scales under your wings.
If you answered mostly D’s: You’re a SandWing
Beloved for your kindness and cheer, what would your friends do without your joy? You’re a true friend to all and can charm even the grumpiest of dragons to smile. You look unlike any SandWing the world has ever seen, with pale gold scales and a pointed tail lacking the typical poisoned barb.
If you answered mostly E’s: You’re a RainWing
The prophecy of the Talons of Peace may have called for a SkyWing, but the Talons of Peace found a RainWing instead. People tend to underestimate you, but in reality you’re smart, strong, and capable. Like all RainWings, you have shimmery iridescent scales that change color with your mood.
If you answered mostly F’s: You’re an IceWing
A proud dragonet, you always aim to be the best and you usually succeed. Some may find you frosty, but you know that you have to play it cool in this dangerous world where only the best achieve success. Some of your scales are silver like the moon while the others are pale blue like ice.
If you answered mostly G’s: You’re a SkyWing
You don’t apologize for the fact that you’re tough and maybe a little rough, but there’s no one more disciplined and fiercely loyal than you. You’re a natural leader and you especially rise to the occasion in times of trouble. Your scales are diamond-hard and have all the colors of fire.
