Day 4: "Living with Animals"

In this lesson, students will be revisiting 'Living with Animals' for our final read before completing the culminating task. We will be using the whole text to answer the question that may not have an answer that jumps out right away, "Why are wildlife reserves important?" Students will be diving deep into the text to weigh both the positives and the negatives on day 5, therefore day 4 is another step toward deeper understanding. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Project text onto the board or use large chart paper
