You need passes now to move around campus during classes. Start up is a See – Think - Wonder
Background for See-Think-Wonder The publicity from his role in Free Willy led to an effort by Warner Brothers Studio to find Keiko a better home. Donations from the studio and a wealthy businessman led to the establishment of the Free Willy-Keiko Foundation in February With donations from the foundation and millions of school children, the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, Oregon spent over $7 million to construct facilities to return him to health with the hope of returning him to the wild. Keiko was moved to his new home on January 7, The plan to return him to the wild was a topic of much controversy. Some felt his years of captivity made such a return impossible. Researchers in a scientific study later said attempts to return him to the wild were misguided. Nevertheless, the process of preparing Keiko for the wild began on September 9, 1998, when he was flown to Iceland. His day-to-day care became the responsibility of the Free Willy-Keiko Foundation with management assistance from the Ocean Futures Society. He underwent training designed to prepare him for his eventual release, including supervised swims in the open ocean. Keiko was finally released in the open in July However, about six weeks later he showed up in a Norwegian fjord, apparently seeking contact with human beings and allowing children to ride on his back. He died there four months later.

Notes This start up wasn’t the most generative in terms of student discussion, so Gavin added some background Didn’t have time to do another continuum stand up and talk at the end Some students had trouble with the block party, perhaps a graphic organizer would help?? Exit slips were good
