Room 113 News April 18th
Students are continuing work together in partnerships and small groups in non-fiction. These nonfiction "book clubs" are a vehicle for students to engage in meaningful conversations around common interests and also sharing the use of nonfiction comprehension strategies.
Here are some larger themes we will explore:
Why are some animals endangered?
Where do these animals live and why?
What can we do to protect endangered animals?
Human actions diminish or destroy animals’ habitats, making it difficult or impossible for these animals to survive.
Animals depend up on the natural resources and terrain of their local habitat to meet their needs and to thrive.
Humans hunt animals for survival or money, sometimes bringing that species to the brink of extinction.
Humans can take action to protect endangered animals.
