The Old Steamer Trunk
Lesson Prompt #2
In the Tucker McBride book, we only saw a few things in Tucker's attic. This trunk was in different corner. It may have belonged to Gramma's grandparents. That might make it about 120 years old when Tucker, Christy and Johnny were in the attic. That would make it close to 200 years old in our time. Think about what may have been in Tucker's family trunk, or pretend you found it in your own grandparents attic. What exciting things from the past might the trunk hold?
1. Make a list of six things that could be in the truck.
2. Then, write a three paragraph short story about who the items may have belonged to,
3. how they were used,
4. and why they were saved.
