Activity Overview


Many themes are present in the book. Students can pick a theme to explore and should support their choice with specific details or events from the text. One prominent theme is bravery. Ruby was a very brave young girl to be able to walk to school through the angry mobs every day.


Bravery

Ruby walked every day into her school, even though there were mobs of people shouting at her. Her teacher was amazed at Ruby's bravery.

"‘Sometimes I'd look at her and wonder how she did it,’ said Mrs. Henry. ‘How she went by those mobs and sat here all by herself and yet seemed so relaxed and comfortable.’"


Some other themes present in this story are courage, faith, hope, compassion, and equality.
