Mrs. Knight and her partners enhance the literacy skills of their students through an interdisciplinary unit about animals and their habitats. Students use multiple sources to research animals, learn to photograph live animals, attend animal-themed theatrical productions, and visit the local zoo and aquarium. Inspired by these sources of knowledge, students publish their essays, reports, poems, and stories about animals in a student magazine and present their work at an assembly for parents and students.
