This is a true story of a boy who took a damaged area of earth on an island of Northern India from floods and erosion, and turned it into a thriving forest. Students need to hear as many stories as possible about young people who care about their earth and their environment. The story will be very appealing to students. Jadav Payeng shows a growth mindset and tremendous determination. He effected change in a big way! What a wonderful ecology lesson!
My “Guided Reading” product includes the geography of the Molai Forest on Majuli Island. In addition, students are asked to use reading comprehension strategies and critical thinking. There are multiple Post-Reading activities which will synthesize students’ learning.
