Between days 2 and 3, students will write a short story, poem, or essay about an animal.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There will not be any mature content, but we may discuss pets who have died, which can be upsetting for some children.
