Ms. Sue please help!
3. Read the passage and answer the question that follows:

Many slaves preferred not to escape their horrible lives on plantations because their families were often with them. Despite the fact that slaves had no rights, they often found ways to sabotage the plantations on which they lived. Slaves would pretend to be ill so they would not have to work. They would also create trouble by breaking tools such as hoes and plows, which were needed for work. Mothers would work fewer hours to care for their children, so women gave birth to many children. The Br'er Rabbit stories illustrate this tricky ingenuity.
