Storyboard Text

  • Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer become wealthy after discovering hidden treasure.
  • The Widow Douglas adopts Huckleberry Finn.
  • Main Idea: Chapter one introduces Huck as a character. Readers begin to see pivotal elements of his personality, including his opposition to civilization, his endless free spirit, and his superstitious tendencies. We also discover that Huck is different from most people of the time period, as he does not blindly accept the ideas proposed to him, such as religion and goodness- he thinks critically and forms his own opinions. This trait will hold a deeper impact later in the novel when Huck is introduced to more difficult concepts, including slavery and race.
  • Widow Douglas and her sister, Miss Watson, attempt to educate Huck about religion, but he disagrees with their beliefs
  • Huck accidentally kills a spider, and he becomes very superstitious.
  • Tom Sawyer appears outside of Huck's window.
  • Literary Element: Personification "...the wind was trying to whisper something to me and I couldn't make out what is was, and so it made the cold shivers run over me."
