Product Description
Students will read about Matthew Meiklejohn, the man who fooled the world in 1950 when he published a hoax in a respected birdwatching journal. This is a true story.

Reading level - 3rd through 5th grade

Second page is a separate file in case you do not wish to print both pages.

Two critical thinking questions at the end can be omitted if desired; these challenge the students to look at the prank from a different perspective to see how the prank might have hurt others and how he could have done it differently.

Great for April Fool's Day or any day!
