This lesson focuses on finding evidence in the text to develop an understanding of a pivotal moment in the text (the Boy's illness), and how it affects both Rabbit and the Boy. Today, students will focus on rereading pages 9-10, which trace the Boy's illness and Rabbit's reactions. After establishing an understanding of what scarlet fever is, and that the Boy eventually recovers, students will then dig deeper into the impact of particular lines on the mood, structure, and character development of the overall story. This part of the text merits its own day of study since it presents a major challenge for Rabbit in his growth and development that students will draw upon to complete the culminating task.
