PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson for C.A. Deedy's "14 Cows for America" is perfect for a wide range of grade levels. It is a picture book with a serious message - a true story about the Maasai people and their contribution of 14 cows to help the citizens of the United States after the September 11 disaster.

I've made this lesson rather simple, in accordance with the book itself. The unit contains -
- Three board pages to introduce the 9/11 topic and the people of the Maasai area of Kenya
- Teacher ideas for a review of the basic facts of 9/11
- A worksheet for students to review facts about Kenya
- A one page reading about the Maasai people
- A graphic matrix for students to use as a reaction page after listening to the story and seeing the art work. (The art work is amazing.)
- A one page story review worksheet that is similar to close reading
- Answer keys for the worksheets
- A one page Essential Question handout.

Except for the essential question, this could be done in one hour/period, but I recommend stopping after the reaction pages are discussed, and picking up the following day by reading Kimeli's Note, and filling in the review sheet.

The theme of international friendship and generosity is emphasized, not the actual incidents of the disaster itself. That is the basis of the essential question writing lesson too.
