This lesson focuses on using details and examples from the text to infer how the animals in the story feel about the fire. The fire is central to the story, and understanding how it impacts the motives of the animals will support subsequent lessons. Supporting questions will help students recognize the effect of the setting and how the characters are affected. Special Materials: Student guided notes sheet, Copy of the anchor text for each student
