The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus

Last week we had a lesson on reliable sources and the 5 Ws of Online Comprehension. Students were then directed to a website and asked to research the Endangered Tree Octopus. This was a fascinating animal to learn about! One of its predators is even the Sasquatch! They thought it was amazing that there was a half ape, half human species that ate octopuses who lived in trees.

They were surprised to learn today that the photos, video, and website they had been reading was all made up. A tough lesson on checking your sources was learned today.

HA HA! GOT YOU 4A!
