Introduce your students to the work of Canadian author Farley Mowat with this delightful story of a young boy and his unpredictable pets. The story is about two Great Horned Owls called Wol and Weeps that were found by Billy, Bruce and Murray. When Billy witnesses children throwing stones at Weeps, who is unable to fly, he trades his scout knife for him. Wol, who is able to fly, was found after a storm. Both Wol and Weeps are given to Bruce before Billy and his family move away to Toronto, Ontario. Have your students keep a response journal for “Owls in the Family”. Before reading chapters, have your students write 2 or 3 sentences to predict what they think will happen. Activities included in this unit include: comprehension, vocabulary, creative writing, enrichment, response journals, and arts and crafts.
