The One and Only Ivan is a magical book that is full of wonder, discovery, awe, and social justice. This novel allows students to make a connection with Ivan, a western lowland gorilla, as well as other animals in his habitat. I created this novel study, book activities, read aloud guide, and additional supports to help you teach this wonderful book.
Teaching is time consuming, so I have created this NO PREP novel guide resource to make your planning easier! This unit is truly print-and-go ready!!! There is also access to a Google Slides version of this resource, which is fully compatible with Google Classroom and other learning systems.
This unit was designed with you, the teacher, in mind. This unit will allow your students to access this novel in a deep and meaningful way. At the same time, this resource will save you time and energy. You’ll be able to spend more time connecting with this story along with your students!
In addition, the questions and activities posed to the students are not fluffy; instead, they challenge the thinking of your students and engage your class in Reading Standards.
