This is a six page nonfiction article that I created for my third grade students. We live in rural, coastal North Carolina. Most have never put on ice skates or skis! This article introduces them to the different sports played and some of the athletes that will be competing.
There is a FREE question guide available for this text. Please go to my store and download it. The questions were created with my third grade students in mind, but they are rigorous and suitable for 2nd-5th students.

I used a Common Core planning sheet to create question stems. I also had harder mClass writing prompts (level O and above) in mind when writing some of the questions.
