Activity Overview


In this activity, students will be provided a question to answer using text evidence. The question asked here is, “What challenges did Karana face while alone in the wilderness?”

The three examples provided as evidence include:

  • "Rain fell that night and lasted for two days.”
  • "If I built a hut here I would have to kill him and his pack. I planned to do this anyway, but it would take much time."
  • "There was another place to the south where I could have built my house...but I did not want to go there because it would remind of the people who were gone."
