Product Description
This is an English as a Second Language unit over an endangered species called the quokka. It takes a true story of an escaped quokka and makes it into a very memorable story. The story is delivered in the approach of Comprehensible Input, meaning it is very easy to understand and teach. I used these ideas with my 1st though 5th graders and with my adult education ESL class. It can easily be adopted to multiple levels and ages.

Included:
-Powerpoint with What are Quokkas? and Looking for a Quokka! stories and activities
-Wanted poster for classroom
-La Chuleta (The Cheat Sheet) for ESL students who speak Spanish
-The Story as a Reading
-The Making Predictions Sheet
-The 4-Frame Storyboard Sheet

The text was written by a native English speaker.

Activities you can do using these materials include readers theater, PQA (Personalized Questioning and Answering), highly interesting videos for MovieTalks, story retell, listen & draw, storyboard creation, transcription, exit tickets, "do now" activities, Brain Breaks, compare & contrast, a model magic art activity, a chronological order activity, predict what will happen next, and a parallel story with a raccoon.

I also included links for further reading, news clips, and real pictures of my students doing the activities in my classroom.
