Winston of Churchill and Global Warming

I love thrift shops! I only say this because that's where I found my latest lesson book.

My husband actually picked it up and wondered if I could use it. I brought it home and showed it to my biology teacher friend who immediately asked it I could read it to her class. Well, of course!

This is a simple story about global warming and what we can do to make a difference. The main character, Winston, is modeled after Winston Churchill and uses some of the lines from the prime minister's best known speeches to inspire the other polar bears. The last page gives some scientific information as well as info on Sir Winston Churchill.

We used this as a review for some critical thinking questions the students were going to answer. After I read the story, I asked students to tell me who the bear was named after, we elaborated on the setting of the story, and we discussed author's purpose. It was an easy, quick lesson.
