Activity Overview


In the book The Boy on the Wooden Box, Leon struggles to survive for many years. Sometimes he survived based on pure luck, sometimes he survived because of his courage, and sometimes he survived because of his intellect. There was a time, at Leon’s lowest point, when he simply didn’t care anymore if he survived or not. In fact, he even preferred death to the hell that he was living in. For this activity, students will identify, describe, and illustrate three examples of when Leon survived during his horrible, unimaginable struggle.

Teachers may also choose to extend this activity to discuss other themes present in the memoir.
