Lesson 1
Scenario 1
Scenario 2
You are 11 years old. You have been separated from your family by a war. In order to survive, you must walk to an area of safety hundreds of miles away. On the journey you must avoid soldiers and dangerous wildlife, and manage to find food and water. The journey will take months. You do not know if you will survive or even see your family again.

If this was an experience you had to live through, how do you think it would affect the person you grew up to be?
You are 11 years old. You live with your family in an area far from towns or cities. Your family does not have any running water or electricity. You are responsible for getting water for your family to drink. To do this, you must walk eight hours a day to the pond and back. You will have to do this every day for years and years.

If this was an experience you had to live through, how do you think it would affect the person you grew up to be?

Back-to-Back and Face-to- Face Activity
Prompt 1
In Chapter 1, it says that Salva "was letting his mind
wander
down the road ahead of his body." He begins to daydream about when he and his friends "made cows out of clay." What does this daydream tell you about the importance of cattle in Salva's life?

Sample response: Cattle are very important in Salva's life and seem to be related to wealth or money. The book says that his father has a lot of cattle and his father was an important man. I bet cattle are important because they can provide milk and food.
Prompt 2
In Chapter 2, we learned that thorns litter the ground where Nya is. It says that Nya "looked at the bottom of her foot. There it was, a big thorn that had broken off right in the middle of her heel." What does the thorn in her heel tell you about Nya? Explain why the thorn tells you this about Nya.
Prompt 3
Where do you think Nya is going? What part of the reading makes you think this? What does this tell you about Nya's character?
Prompt 4
When the rebel soldiers arrive, Salva
hesitates
for a moment, but then steps forward to join the group of men. But the soldier says, "Over there" and points Salva to go join the group of women and children. Salva then
scurries
over to the women's side. What does Salva's choice to step forward tell you about Salva's character?
Prompt 5
In Chapter 2, Salva asks the same questions many times: "Where are we going? Where is my family? When will I see them again?" What does this tell you about how Salva is feeling?
