Product Description
In this unit, students will use literacy skills to become experts on natural disasters. They will learn that experts are people who use reading, writing, listening, and speaking to build and share deep knowledge about a topic. They will apply these skills during their nonfiction writing unit as well. They will begin the unit with Living Through a Natural Disaster, reviewing many of the aspects of nonfiction they’ve learned in the past, like determining the main idea, figuring out vocabulary in context, and using text features for understanding. They will then apply new strategies, as well as old, to the book Anatomy of a Volcanic Eruption, which is high-interest and full of many different kinds of text features. Finally, the will finish up the unit with Earthquakes, which is a more narratively written nonfiction book published by the Smithsonian. Students will practice summary writing after finishing each book, and finally write a summary synthesizing the information from all three texts.
