I have my students use these discussion cards after reading Shel Silverstein's book Lafcadio: The Lion Who Shot Back as part of the 3rd Grade Benchmark Advance curriculum (Lafcadio is the perfect companion text to The One and Only Ivan!! Find chat cards for The One and Only Ivan in my store).
Can also be used as written response questions (this option is also included in this packet).
Perfect task for building speaking and listening skills!
