Fascinating non-fiction!

owen and mzeeThis past week, most grade 1-5 classes have looked at a series of very interesting non-fiction books written by the Hatkoff family. These stories captured our attention and showed some really amazing true stories:

winterOwen & Mzee : the true story of a remarkable friendship, Owen & Mzee : the language of friendship, Leo the snow leopard : the true story of an amazing rescue, Knut : how one little polar bear captivated the world, Looking for Miza : the true story of the mountain gorilla family who rescued one of their own, Winter’s tail : how one little dolphin learned to swim again.
We also enjoyed watching some more of the excellent BBC Super Smart Animals show, and you can watch part two here:
