Ideas for Teaching "White Fang"

"White Fang" by Jack London is the classic story of a tamed wolf who takes on the life of an average dog.

Instead of merely assigning the book for reading to your class, or reading it to them yourself, integrate some simple activities that help bring the story to life. For example, bring the five senses into the activities, and show students photos of the actual places named in the book.  Showing students photos of snow, wolves, and the Mackenzie river will help bring the story to life, and help students remember the story long-after they are finished reading the book.
