Owen and Mzee: The True Story of a Remarkable Friendship by Isabella Hatkoff, Craig Hatkoff, and Dr. Paula Kahumbu is a sweet narrative nonfiction story about an unlikely friendship between a tortoise and a hippo. This literature unit has been created for 2nd to 4th grade (2nd graders may need extra support with cause and effect and a few other skills).
This Owen and Mzee literature unit includes a flip book with compare and contrast, ABC order, sequencing, characters, setting, summary, vocabulary, cause and effect, and first, next, then, and last. Following the flip book pages, you will find no prep printables for who/what/when/where/why/how, friendship, writing a friendly letter, researching tortoises and hippos, comprehension questions, a writing prompt, as well as answer keys for pages that need them.
