After we have completed some persuasive pieces of writing about animals in captivity and reading an article on tiger farms, I have found this clip from 60 minutes about a lady who is trying to protect elephants from poachers in Africa. We will be completing some tasks on this video on Monday afternoon, so if you are in 5/6A please do not comment yet.

– Explain what the lady has done to protect the elephants.

– Do you think it is fair that the elephants are poached? Why/Why not?

– What else can be done to save elephants from poachers?

You may be able to use this video to help you unpack a seed on this topic. You will then be able to complete a persuasive piece on protecting endangered animals or an information report on elephants.
