Just from reading the title and looking at the cover: Can you make a prediction about this book? What do you think may happen? What problems do you see arising? What clues from the cover give you these ideas? Remember to prove all your thinking (I predict ________________ because..., I think that _____________ because...)
Introducing the setting:
All of these images represent different aspects of Gambian culture. Gambia is the setting of our new book.
Using the cover of the book, the images and any prior knowledge you may have create a KWL chart. Fill out only the K and W columns.
K (What you Know)
W( Things you are Wondering)
L ( Things you have learned) This column will be filled out later in our learning.
