Carolina Tiger Rescue

Nitro, the Blind Tiger

Mrs. Verikokkos' Reading Group

During reading, our small group read the story from National Geographic Kids entitled, Tiger in Trouble. We learned a lot about what a rescue center can do to help animals in need like Nitro. Nitro's story inspired us to create this digit flyer. Enjoy!

Creative Cages-inspired by Nitro's story

After reading, chapter 1, "Junkyard Jungle," students were asked to design the perfect cage for Nitro and Apache. They made sure they included nonfiction text features including: a labeled diagram, a title and captions. Some of their ideas were super creative!

Kenneth's Letter

Dear Caroline Tiger Rescue,
Hi, my name is Kenneth and I'm in second grade at LISG in New York. We read the story, Tiger in Trouble in our reading group. I learned all about Nitro's life. I learned that Nitro was blind. Also, I learned that the workers trained Nitro to not bang into the fence. Thank you for bringing Nitro to his new home. How many tigers did you rescue?


From,
Kenneth

Noah's Letter

Dear Carolina Tiger Rescue,
Hi, I'm Noah and I am in second grade at LISG in New York. We read Tiger in Trouble in our reading group. I learned that the stranger got bit by the lioness before the animals got rescued. I thought Nitro was smart because he was blind but he knows where things are. Thank you for rescuing Nitro. How many tigers did you rescue?


From,

Noah

Sophia's Letter

Dear Carolina Tiger Rescue,
Hi, my name is Sophia and I'm in third grade at LISG in New York. We read the story, Tiger in Trouble in our reading group. I learned all about Nitro's life. I learned Nitro did not go near the peppermint scent. Also, I thought Nitro was smart because he was able to find his way around his cage alone. Thank you for taking Nitro to his new home. How many tigers did you rescue?



From,
Sophia
