Happy Monday Everyone!
It’s my LAST week of school! Finals continue today so I’ll be workin’ hard to get those grades in.
A zebra on the loose in the city? That’s not something you see everyday! Read a reporter’s interviews (primary sources!) of four people involved in this outrageous incident:
– the kid who took the cell phone video of the zebra running through the city that went viral
– the zebra’s owner who accidentally let him get away (is that LEGAL?)
– the lady who hit the zebra with her car
– the veterinarian who treated the zebra
The students will read all 4 witness accounts and become newspaper reporters. They will have to weed through the extra information to find the most important and relevant facts that should be included. Then, they’ll write an informative newspaper article!
My students like these because they can practice good writing WITHOUT having to research OR think up stuff to say.

Thanks to Tracy at A Perfectly Poetic Page for the AWESOME animal print background frames! If you haven’t seen her Etsy shop, Little Shop of Color, then you are MISSING OUT! She’s got several bright and colorful background sets that are VERY reasonably priced – most are only $1. Happy Shopping!
