The Problem

We want to help support rescue missions to save elephants and otters.

Our Plan

Students will learn about problems that otters and elephants by reading "Odder" by Katherine Applegate and "The One and Only Ruby" by Katherine Applegate. They will then complete a research project where they learn more about both of these animals and the problems they are facing. These students will adopt both an Elephant (through Elephant Sanctuary) and an Otter (through WWF). After adopting these animals students will write letters of advocacy. They will use what they have learned through their book discussion, research project and adopting the animals. These letters will persuade law makers and other leaders of steps they need to take in order to help save these animals.
