Five 5 page packets to help students learn about African Animals. Each packet has a vocabulary page that introduces the packet. Then the packet has a story for fluency and marking the text. Next is a page answering questions of different levels for students to refer back to the stories. After that is a page to help the students take the information they learned and organize their writing. Finally is a page for the students to write their stories.
I have used these packets in 2nd grade as week long packets to increase students reading, writing, and science knowledge. Then I used them again as quick 1-2 packets that students love in the 5th grade.
This is the students favorite writing unit we do all year. We start by having the students make predictions about the most dangerous animals in Africa and have fun as we work from five to number one.
