Looking for Miza: Teaching Resources

Language Arts & Social Studies Lessons (Gr 3-8)

Inspired by the book Looking for Miza, by Craig Hatkoff and his daughters Isabella and Juliana, the teaching resources below will take your students on a journey to Central Africa. On your trip, students will visit Virunga National Park to learn how to identify mountain gorillas and create action plans to raise awareness of the problems facing these endangered creatures.

As a class, watch video highlights  from the Kids Gorilla Summit that aired on September 26, 2008. Students will learn from environmental experts, guest speakers, and other students as they discuss how they are actively working to make a difference with both the humanitarian and mountain gorilla crises in Africa.

Help teach your students about real world issues and how to help save our planet through the story of Miza.

Learn about other remarkable true stories about animals who have overcome adversity.

And don't forget to watch the Winter's Tail Virtual Field Trip Webcast.
