Teacher Resources: Chapter 26

Writing Prompts

Opinion: Do you think Karana was right to set a trap to catch Rontu-Aru? Why or why not? Use what you already know about wild and domesticated dogs. Support your point of view with reasons and information.

Informative/explanatory: Using the Interactive Map and/or Nature/Plants, find one plant that is interesting to you. Name the plant, draw a picture, and describe how it might be used by humans. Use precise language to inform about or explain the topic.

Narrative: Pretend you are teaching someone to tame a wild animal. Describe your lesson. Use a variety of transitional words and phrases, such as first, next, and finally, to manage the sequence of steps.
