Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight? Jerry Pallotta has a series of books called, Who Would Win? These books are AMAZING. The pictures and facts grab the attention of the Littles and keep them hanging on every word. Before I read them the story I asked them, “If a polar bear and a grizzly bear got in a fight, who would win?” I had them complete the first section of their WHO WOULD WIN? paper by drawing their prediction and stating their reasoning. Then, I had them draw another picture to add to our class graph. We discussed the results of our graph and our thinking. Then, I read the story and we were amazed to find out that a Grizzly Bear would probably win. We talked about the evidence in the text that supports the authors reasoning. Then, I had them draw and write about what we found out.
