  • Two Old Women Reading Assignment 8.22 Spedding Grade 5 PYP The International School of Monterey READ Read Chapter 2, pp. 17 – 29 VOCABULARY Record any unfamiliar vocabulary in the space below. We’ll discuss these words, and how we might guess their meaning given how they’re used in the story. RESPONDING TO THE LITERATURE Respond to the following questions on lined paper. Do not rewrite the questions. Just include this handout with your responses. Be sure to explain yourself fully. Cite specific examples from the story to support your answers. 1. The Athabaskans carried their fire. This is an important strategy when you live in a place that is so cold in the winter. How did they do it? Explain. 2. Draw a sketch of the women’s rabbit snare and how they set it up. Label the parts. 3. On p. 21, Chid said, Many times I have done that, but never did I think I would do it again. What is the meaning of this statement? Explain. 4. Without the babiche and hatchet that Ozhii Nelii and Shruh Zhuu left for Chid, the two old women would have died. Do you agree? Support your option with evidence. OPTIONAL (if time permits) On p. 24, pg. 3, Chid thinks: What a pampered pair they had been! Then on p. 26, pg. 3, Sa says: We have learned much during our long lives. Yet there we were in our old age, thinking that we had done our share in life. So we stopped just like that. These are two very important insights for Chid and Sa. Perhaps these insights will be necessary for their survivial. Do you agree? Explain with evidence.
