I can’t wait to get my students started on the Global Read Aloud book, The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate. Check out the International Gorilla Research Program at http://www.igcp.org/ shared by teacher Billy Spicer.
Also shared by Rhonda Ludec was a site (by Amanda Solesbee) with a
Trip Advisory that is excellent to learn about the gorillas in the Congo.
For a literacy center to give your students the ability to personally know gorillas in the wild, download the app iGorilla.
