Do you love nectar, like I love drawing? Questions for Animals @ ALS

After reading William Blake’s poem, The Tyger, the students wrote a poem to a strange and mysterious animal. We set the scene: for one day, you and this animal speak the same language! Ask the animal any questions you like! Enjoy–
