Activity Overview

In this activity, students will be provided a question or prompt to answer using textual evidence. The prompt here is: “How do characters show perseverance in the text?”

This type of activity is perfect for providing students with an additional option for short answer essays, or a way to prepare for larger writing projects. Students who may benefit from creating visuals can opt for this rather than handwriting a paragraph.

The five examples provided are:

  1. The more questions the narrator asks of the prince, the more he learns about his new friend.
  2. In order to tame the fox, the prince has to keep showing up and keep working hard to gain the fox’s trust.
  3. Without completing his journey, the prince wouldn’t have learned all that he needed to know.
  4. Without wandering far and long in the desert, the prince and the narrator would not have found the well.
  5. Without sticking to his repair job, even when it looked completely hopeless, the narrator wouldn’t have been able to fix his plane.
