Look at animal cruelty in a new and innovative way! Begin with an anticipation guide and webquest to introduce the issues and laws (webquest developed for CA state laws, but can easily be changed to your state). Then, examine the treatment of killer whales at Seaworld by watching "Blackfish" and answering video questions. Complete a Pit Bull mini project where students analyze news resources to explore the controversial issue of Pit Bull aggression and maulings. Finally, use the online resources NewsELA to have students read and analyze 5 current articles that deal with animal treatment and rights.
