Monkeys Nonfiction/Fiction Literature
Students will have fun learning about real monkeys and comparing
them to fictional monkey characters. This may be a fun prezoo activity.
I read the nonfiction book Capuchin Monkeys© by Cecilia Pinto McCarthy (a Pebble Plus book) and the Fiction story Curious George© by H. A. Rey.
You may want to add a few more nonfiction books about monkeys to your study.
