Earth Day Read-Alouds, Day 3

This week, I have created a series of Earth Day Read-Alouds, specifically focused on endangered animals. On Thursday, I shared a PowerPoint of 22 endangered animal profiles with printable research and vocabulary activities. Yesterday, I shared a list of six picture books to read aloud with ideas for discussion with your students. Today is the third and final post in this series (because Earth Day is Monday!).

Today's post will discuss three novels about endangered animals. As I did with the picture books, each novel is accompanied by video and discussion ideas for your students. I have done all three of these lessons with different sixth and eighth grade classes this week. For all three, students were engaged in the discussion. The teachers were also engaged in the discussions and complimented the lessons. I plan to do more lessons like these in the future!
