2016

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 Lifeline for Lions " by Pamela S. Turner .

In the informational text “A Lifeline for Lions,” Pamela S. Turner discusses an outbreak of a disease that negatively impacted Serengeti National Park’s lion population in 1994.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Community, Man vs. Nature, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"Who's in control: man or nature?", "How do people create change?", and "What is the importance of community?"
