Activity Overview

In this activity, students will be provided a question or prompt to answer using text evidence. Students need to identify three examples from the text that answer the question, and depict it in a storyboard.

The prompt here is, “Identify moments where a character takes a risk and explain how they benefit or lose from it.”

The three examples provided include:

  • Jess standing up to Janice Avery on the bus. As a result, Jess and Leslie become best friends.
  • Leslie uses a rope to cross the creek, which eventually is the cause of her death.
  • Jess accepts Miss Edmunds offer to visit the Smithsonian. Jess enjoys the experience and avoids witnessing Leslie’s death, or falling to his own death.
