    My deaf students are reading the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen and in the book, a turtle lays eggs in the sand. This film about sea turtles really gave them visual reinforcement of this fascinating part of nature. They were totally engaged. The filming is excellent, captions are good and the conservation message is compelling.
