A hunting ban on the Powhatan is about to expire. The environmentalists want to protect the wildlife; the hunters are oiling their guns. Then someone completely unexpected comes forward to spearhead the conservation effort - the weirdo. About the Resource: The pack has been designed to cover five weeks, with assigned pages for reading, comprehension tasks and language analysis. **A digital copy of the file is also available on Google Slides for students to complete online instead of printing.
