Product Description
This story has a million ways it can be taught. We can use it to encourage students to think about nature. We can use it as an ecopedagogy lesson. We can use it to show direct and indirect characterization. Also, it is a simple story that would be fantastic to use to introduce that pesky annotating lesson! The sky is the limit... and I'm working on creating a few lessons that speak to those big ideas.

That being said, this is simply a PDF of "The Sound Machine" by Roald Dahl and the Constructed Response assignment to match.

How do “The Sound Machine” and this clip from FernGully (youtu.be/RgI0pbnJtYo) relate to how humanity views nature?

We are teaching free thinkers in a standardized school environment. The goal of this assignment is have students read a story that gets them thinking outside the confines of school and into nature, but then to connect that all back in the classic milestone writing assignment. (I think we call it common core affiliated testing?)
