Question 1

When they arrive at the courthouse square, the people of Maycomb seperate into African-Americans and white people to eat their picnics. They all seem to be unhappy and when they see their children acting happily they disapprove of it.

Question 2

Jem, Scout, and Dill where sitting in the balcony with African Americans. This is significant because white people sit only with there own colour.

Question 1

The people in the courthouse square were separated into different groups. The white people had picnic parties and were sitting on newspapers, eating many kinds of foods; and the coloured people were sitting in the sun, eating very plain food so quietly it was if they were not there.

Question 2

Jem, Scout, and Dill were sitting on in the second floor balcony with the coloured people. This is significant because it not common that white people sit with the coloured people, and that white people dont sit on the balcony because it was for coloured people. Both white and coloured people try to stick to there own colour and usually avoid each other.

1. When scout and jem arrived at the courthouse square, they saw how the picnic were seperated by the african americans and the whites. The white people were sitting on newspaper under trees, eating nice healthy food. The african americans were in the far corner in the sun eating plain boring food.
