The Secret Garden Chapters 2 and 3 - English literature

I have grouped these two chapters together because they are part of one unit.  Mary leaves India and is on her way back to England. She goes by ship, and has to spend the voyage with a poor family.

Mary is sent to England, after the death of her parents. How does she feel about this move?
Who does she go with?
What does she feel about her traveling companions?
How do they feel about her?
Why is the Nursery Rhyme so fitting?
How does Mary feel about this nursery rhyme being sung to her?
How does she make her feelings known?
How does she react to the news about her uncle?
What parts of the news does she like, dislike?
What are Mary's feelings about Mrs. Medlock?
How does Mrs. Medlock feel about Mary?
Does it come out as pity or hate?
How does Mary feel after this journey?

Homework: Write a diary entry the Mary writes while she is on the ship. Include her feelings toward the other people on the ship.
