  • To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter-4 Choose one the enrichment activities below to complete for chapter four.

    MAKE A LIST: Scout said to Jem, Grown folks dont have hiding places. While adults dont necessarily hide the way kids do, they certainly hide in other ways. Generate a healthy list of the many ways that adults hide.

    SKETCH ME SOMETHING: Jem and Scout have found some treasures in the knothole of a tree.

    They are beginning to wonder who put these treasures in the tree and whether or not they were left there for them. Think of a young child in your life (a sibling, cousin, neighbor). Brainstorm some of their interests and take their age, gender, personal hobbies into account. If you were to leave little treasures in a knothole of sorts (could be anything a trunk, a log, a rock they play near every day)what types of objects would you leave for them? On the back of this sheet, draw the knothole, or whatever object you would use as the dropping point, and draw at least five of the treasures you would leave for them to discover. Please label each item.

    RADIO FUN: Radio shows were a popular source of entertainment in the 1930s. Listen to the radio

    show below and write down four of the comments that the boy in the clip says to insult his teacher. Also write down the teachers name and the boys name. (Make sure you hit the Play button.) http://www.ourmissbrooks.com/listennow.php

  • To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter 6-Choose one the enrichment activities below to complete for chapter six.

    GROWING PAINS: In the last six chapters, Scout has learned many things about life and the society in which

    she lives. Jem has also been adapting to his environment. In the columns on this sheet, list of the things that Scout has learned and the ways that Jem has changed over the course of the story so far.

    MISCHIEF VS. MISBEHAVIOR: The narrator tells us that it seemed the only message Jem got from Atticus was

    insight into the art of cross examination. Jem has been told not to torment Boo, and he has ignored it. Consider whether or not this makes Jem a bad kid. How would you account for (describe) this behavior? The distinction between mischief and misbehavior is a tricky one, made more difficult by missed signals from the adult world and mixed feelings within a child. In the columns below, try to make the distinction between mischief and misbehavior. Which one would you consider to be worse?

  • To Kill a Mockingbird Chapter 7- Choose one the enrichment activities below to complete for chapter seven.

    TRADE SHOES: In the spirit of Atticuss life lesson, take a moment to walk in Jems shoes. We all have an

    inner monologue from time to time, especially when we are deeply moved by something. Pretend that you are Jem in the moment he realizes that Boo has only friendly feelings towards the kids and Mr. Radley will not allow Boo to interact with them. What would that conversation in his head sound like? Use the space below to voice the dialogue between Jem and his emotions in the midst of his discovery.

    WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN: Jem is educating Scout on the ways of the Egyptians. Take this opportunity to

    Re-familiarize yourself with Egyptian history by researching their contributions to the world by way of inventions. Make a list of items we use today that were initially inspired by the Egyptians.
