Fall was in the air today. It is such a beautiful time of year, when the leaves begin to turn. Students continued to develop questions and connections around The One and Only Ivan and had a chance today to discuss in small groups some questions they had. In the afternoon we watched actual footage of an event that was included in the novel. I have included the link if you would like to see how a boy was rescued from the domain of gorillas at a zoo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-CMxMv34_A
