Chapter Seven: Discovery and Disappointment
1. Imagine you are the tree in front of the
Radley’s house. Describe the things you saw and
conversations you heard, as well as any other
things that involved you and people around you.
2. Now you are a piece of paper that Jem has
written on. What did he write on you and what
was he going to do with you? Also, describe
what you heard and what happened to you
throughout the day.
Chapter Eight: A Cold Day in Maycomb
1. Now, crawl into the skin of Atticus Finch,
and imagine he keeps a diary. Describe
your day and be sure to include the things
you saw, said, heard, and thought.
2. It can get very cold in Maycomb, so now
you are a blanket. Where did you come
from? What was your day like? What did
you see and hear? What happened to you
by the end of the day?
