Sleds on Boston Common
Overview
  • Introduction
    • In Louise Borden’s Sleds on Boston Common, a fictional story based on local Boston lore, the narrator is 9-year-old Henry Price. Seeking to change how things are run after British soldiers take over the city in 1774, he speaks to the general in charge of the troops about allowing the local children to sled on the Common. Will Henry get a place to sled? Use this unit to help 5th grade students understand that by speaking up and clearly explaining their reasoning, it is possible to create positive change.
