In this Newberry Award winning book by William Steig, students will follow
a genteel rat named Abel as he learns to rely on his instincts and the
natural resources in his environment for survival in hopes of returning to
the family he loves. Students will learn the difference between predictions
and inferences, practice writing thoughtful questions, and try their hand at
the art of reflective writing. We will combine science into our lessons as
we examine a variety of different adaptations of animals in various
environments – including the desert, ocean, and rainforest. Students will
also explore the habits of nocturnal animals and experiment with the role
that camouflage plays in an animal’s survival.
