“Deep in a forest a shelter lies hidden, an elephant refuge where cruelty’s forbidden. A story of capture and desolation, of rescue, shelter and preservation.”
Mali’s story traces her life from capture through years of hard labor in the lumber industry to her life in the big city. Will Mali find love and the care she needs to survive?
Written in rhyming text and supplemented with facts against a background of full-color, realistic illustrations, Mali - A Rescued Asian Elephant Tale is a unique resource for classroom discussions.
This paperback book includes a world and habitat map, glossary of vocabulary words, and a wide range of discussion questions giving every student, regardless of reading level, an opportunity to think critically and participate!
Themes of animal and forest exploitation, loss of habitat, and human-animal interaction integrate science into your reading curriculum.
Corresponding Mali activity cards, posters, and wristbands are also available on TpT. The cards reinforce the reading skills of:
synonyms and antonyms
distinguishing fact and opinion
determining cause and effect
reconstructing a sequence
using context clues
This book, when used in conjunction with the activity cards, provides the materials needed for an engaging literacy learning center.
