Activity Overview


“Amigo Brothers” ends without revealing the winner of the final boxing match. One way for students to demonstrate an understanding of story elements is to create a three-frame extended ending to the story. The ending should be consistent with the story’s message, the plot events, and characters’ established personalities. Students can also use text bubbles to practice writing dialogue. For each frame, have students depict the scene and narrate it in the box below, using proper grammar and transitions.

Students who are unfamiliar with the way boxing matches are scored may find some helpful information here.


Example “Amigo Brothers” Story Prediction

After the fight, both boys left without waiting for the final result. They congratulated each other and went home to clean up and get some rest. The next morning, the boys read about the fight in the local paper. Felix won the match, 30-29. Felix would be moving on to the Golden Gloves Championship Tournament. When Felix and Antonio met that afternoon, there were no hard feelings between them. For them, it was just another day at the gym.
