Climb or Die vs. Battling Everest Comparison Activities Activity 1 • Go to this website: http://www.readwritethink.org/materials/venn/. • -Follow the directions and prompts to create a Venn diagram that compares the climb of Jake and Danielle in “Climb or Die” to the climb of Hillary and Norgay in “Battling Everest”. • - Be sure to include 3 details in each section of your Venn diagram • - When your diagram is complete, you may print it ONE TME ONLY . . . So make sure it’s exactly how you want it. Activity 2 • Use Microsoft Word to complete a problem-solution chart for these two stories. Your chart should be Story Problem Solution similar to the one you see here. You should include at least 2 problems/solutions from each story but you are not limited to that! The more work you put forth, the better grade you will receive! • When finished, save your document-make sure your name and your partner’s name (first or last is ok) are part of the title. For example, if Mrs. Dawes and Mrs. Moore were partners, our document would be titled: DawesMoore CD-BE comparison Activity 3 • Answer the following questions in your Word document from Activity 2. Be sure to restate the question in your answer. 1. On pg 90, the article is introduced by this statement: ”Could the two climbers conquer the killer mountain?“ Using details from the selection, support the author’s decision to describe Mount Everest as a “killer mountain”. 2. Why do you think Hillary and Norgay were willing to risk their lives to make the climb? Use details from the selection to support your answer. 3.
