Reading Guide Chapter One – My Side of the Mountain
1. Make a list of things you would take with you if you planned to “Rough it” all alone in the wilderness for an entire year. Remember you must carry things in your pack.
Please remember everything in this packet should be in cursive!!
2. Get into your groups and share your list. Predict what you think the story is about by looking at the cover and reading the title.
