After the family has arrived in California and started working on the farms, a dust storm hits, and Mama gets sick with Valley Fever.

This activity will lead students to read some information about Valley Fever, watch some videos from the news, watch first-hand accounts of people who have had the sickness, and answer questions of various Bloom's Taxonomy levels to think about Valley Fever. This will give them a helpful, interesting background knowledge of how this illness affected our characters and how it affects real life even today.

INCLUDED:

* Mayo Clinic medical description link
* links to videos of news broadcasts and interviews with illness victims
* a 1-page analysis activity of the article and videos

Enjoy Esperanza Rising! Let's rise again, with new life ahead of us!
