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 "Taming Threats to the World's Largest Cats" by Jacqueline Pratt-Tuke.

In "Taming Threats to the World's Largest Cats," Jacqueline Pratt-Tuke describes the threats big cats face and what is being done to help them. 

As we read, we will be discussing the theme of Human vs. Nature as it relates to the text. We are trying to answer this big question :

"How do we view nature?"

Ways to support your child:

  • Ask your child about this informational text at home:
    • What was "Taming Threats to the World's Largest Cats" about?
    • What did you learn about Human vs. Nature?
  • Watch What is an Endangered Species? at home with your child.
