Builds A Cabin Activity
Henry decides to build a cabin, he is given lots of advice from his
friends. While others think it should be bigger, he has his own ideas.
Follow Henry through the building process and see how his cabin is just
right! Henry Builds a Cabin is another fantastic book by D.B.
Johnson that looks at the life of Henry David Thoreau in a delightfully
engaging way. It is a book for all ages.
would like to thank the following individuals for their wonderful support
of this project: the author D.B. Johnson; Richard Smith (Thoreau); Leslie
Wilson, Curator of Special Collections, Concord Free Public Library;
and Jeff Cramer, Curator and Jayne Gordon, Education Program Director
at the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods. With their gracious assistance
and warm hospitality, we are able to enrich the lives of students with
this virtual activity. So many children cannot make the trip to Concord
to view the important primary source material or experience the essence
of Thoreau and his friends. With much gratitude, we hope you enjoy the
activities and the fun of discovery.
