My notebooks and accompanying activities based on Helen Ward’s Varmints. The book heavily centres on environmental changes, with subtle hints of capitalism. Creates lots of thought-provoking activities and the writing that comes out of this is incredible. Thanks to Power of Reading for these ideas.
