Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "A Kenyan Teen’s Discovery: Let There Be Lights To Save Lions" by Nina Gregory.
In “A Kenyan Teen’s Discovery: Let There Be Lights To Save Lions,” Richard Turere explains his solution to an animal conservation crisis.
As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Man vs. Nature, Resilience & Success, Social Change & Revolution, Technology, Progress & Industry, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
"How do people create change?", "What are the costs and benefits of technology?", "Why do people succeed?", "How can we achieve peace?", and "How do we view nature?"
