Question 1
The relationship between Dill and Scout is Dill asked Scout to marry her early on in the summer and forgot about it. Scout reacts to this by beating Dill up.


Question 2
Miss Maudie Atkinson is very generous by spending her time with Scout, Dill, and Jem, baking them cakes and other stuff like that. The kids think she is the nicest lady ever! She treats them with respect and treats them like they are important. A typical Maycomb woman stays at home.

Question 3
The reasons that Atticus gave the children were to stop playing the Boo Radley game were it is his business if he wants to come out of the house or stay inside. The other reason was how would you feel if someone came in your house without knocking. I think Atticus is right because it is respectful and you should give people privacy because it is their house.

Atticus tells the children that it is none of their business about what happens to Boo Radley and he tells them to go and play something else.

Qurstion 1

Dill wants to marry Scout when they grow up since they play together. but this is just one of typical promise children make when they're young. When Dill begins to tag along Jem he begins to completly ignore scout

She's honest to the children, great at baking cakes and gardening.Is sympathetic towards Boo Radley because of his father thinks everthing that is fun is a sin. She's the children's friend and a mother figure to Scout.

question 3
Atticus tells the children not to play the Boo Radley game because it is an invasion on privacy, and that it is none of their buisness what Boo Radley does.

Question 2
Miss Maudie Atkinson is a typical Maycomb woman. She is a nice old lady who respects the adults and the children of Maycomb. She enjoys the outdoors more than being inside her house. She loves her garden and plants. The children, especially Scout, like to be near her. When her house got burned down, she was not to sad.
