Storyboard Text

  • There was a boy named John Henry. He was born a slave and lived in a small house. 
  • When he was a boy he grew so fast that his pants would get to short and he would have to where adult pants 
  • John became a steel driver, a hammer man.  John was so strong that he dug tunnels.  
  • Then one day when Henry was working on the railroad the railroad ran straight into Big bend mountain. The mountain was so big that it could not go around it. So John stared to break the rocks now and the boss was mad because he wanted the tunnel build and he told the works that if they didn't work faster he would fire all of the men. 
  • The boss challenged John to see who can break the most rocks with a hammer or a machine . So John said that he would do it and at the end he won 
  • John sat down on the rock and he died. He was a caring, hard working man.
