Good ecology story books

Discussion in 'English' started by Mrnotsoperfect, Aug 14, 2007.

  1. I'm looking at local ecology when I return to school in September. Can anyone think of any good fiction/nonfiction stories that I could read to the children regarding ecology? I don't wish to scare my class into some eco-doom story just maybe a short, thought provoking story?

    what about movies?

  3. You don't say what year group you will be teaching so some of these may not be appropriate, but why not try:-

    The Great Kapok Tree - A tale of the Amazon Rain Forest/ A River Ran Wild - Lynne Cherry (American but worth a look)

    Window - Jeannie Baker (excellent by the way but no words although none needed as pictures speak volumes)

    Saving Finnegan - Sally Grindley - a story about a stranded whale (also deals with death)
