We have been working hard in 3rd grade learning how to compare and contrast! One way we can do that is by exploring different types of texts. By clicking the link below, you will hear a story read aloud titled Follow the Drinking Gourd. After listening to this, we hope you will help us compare and contrast its main character, Peg Leg Joe with a real-life hero we will read about later on this week named Harriet Tubman.
As you listen, think of the ways Peg Leg Joe and Harriet may be similar and how they may be different. Also, listen carefully to the song that is sung throughout the story. Figure out how it helped slaves escape to freedom!
