For as long as anyone can remember, an insurmountable wall has separated two kingdoms, but no one can remember why the wall was built in the first place. Years of unknowing have fed a hatred and fear of what and who lies on the other side of the wall. When a group of children decide they are tired of living in fear and hatred, a possibility for hope arises. The Wall can also be used to teach students how to make inferences and draw conclusions and to effectively summarize.
