Chapter One Activities


In the fourth paragraph the main setting of the story is revealed. What is it?

Sign of the Beaver Map

Map for Sign of the Beaver Quincy, Massachusettes is where Matt’s family moved from. It is south of Boston (the capital indicated by a star.)

Penobscot River

This story takes place on the Penobscot River whose four branches are indicated on the map. The story says their cabin was at the mouth of the river, but doesn’t say which mouth. Possibly it is the branch that is furthest east. Why? The others have lakes near their mouth which is not mentioned in this story.
