Product Description
Supplement your unit on the environment with this close reading packet about how California is encouraging its citizens to switch from grass to low-water gardens. This close reading packet includes text-dependent questions to go along with a free article from Newsela.

The article and subsequent discussions tie in nicely with NGSS science standard 3 - LS4-4 (merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes).

Included are:
* 2 days of questions aligned to RI 1
* 1 day of questions aligned to RI 2
* 1 day of questions aligned to RI 6
* chart templates for the RI 3.1, 3.2 and 3.6
* 1 (DOK 4) journal question

That is a total of 4 days of close reading notes, giving you the flexibility to target the standards and skills your students need to practice.

Each day's questions begin at DOK 1 and gradually elevate to DOK 3 and 4.

Please note: due to copyright restrictions, the article is NOT included in the packet. The link to the FREE article is provided within the packet. https://newsela.com/articles/drought-lawns/id/3349/
