Case Study “Animal Heroes” 4th years - 2009 Lesson Plan
Binti Jua is the hero of the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago, Illinois. The 8-year-old western lowland gorilla rescued a 3-year-old child who climbed a railing and fell 18 feet into the zoo's exhibit. Zoo officials responded immediately, but it was Binti who got to the unconscious boy first and carried him to an area where the humans could attend to him. Her own 17-month-old baby, Koola, clutched her back throughout the incident. Binti Jua was born in 1988 at the Columbus Zoo, which has one of the most successful gorilla breeding programs in the country. Her father, Sunshine, was from the San Francisco Zoo and her mother, Lulu, was from the Bronx Zoo . Binti's Aunt, Koko (Sunshine's older sister), lives at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, California. She is famous for her extensive knowledge of American Sign Language, which she uses to communicate with humans and her Gorilla-friend, Michael
Answer the following questions What happened? Who did it happen to? When did it happen? Where did it happen? How did it happen? What can you tell us about Binti Jua? If you were that child, how would you feel at that moment? Binti Jua was hand-reared at the San Francisco Zoo. Hand-reared animals often lack the mothering skills they would have obtained in the wild, so in 1991 she was moved to Chicago to be trained for motherhood. Binti Jua seems to have learned her lessons well. The little boy Binti Jua saved spent 4 days in the hospital and was then released. Binti Jua's gentleness made her a hero. Questions about students’ previous knowledge Have you ever been to the zoo? Have you seen a gorilla in it? Where was the gorilla? What was the cage like? Could you get into the cage? Would you get in if you could? What do you know about gorillas? Write a short description. In what way are the Giraffe, the Pelly and the Monkey heroes in the story?
