These 3 short lessons are help for CCSS.ELA.RI.6.7 (also appropriate for LAFS.6.RI.3.7): Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue. This Common Core practice follows an "I do," "we do," "you do" model and is part of my Continuous Improvement Model (CIM) series.
You can save some money by purchasing this CIM as a part of my 6th grade CIM lessons super bundle:

In this resource are 6 questions (2 per lesson) related to the RI.7 standard (Integration of Knowledge and Ideas - Informational Text).
This CIM is slightly different from my other CIMs in that the appropriate texts are NOT public domain. Therefore, only the links to the texts are included. However, for lessons 1 and 2, I made graphs to go along with the text, so those are included. Also, since they are not public domain, I could not adapt them to lower the Lexile. However, they do meet the Lexile measures for appropriate texts for middle grades students. Lexile is in no way affiliated with or endorses this resource. All 3 lessons have 2 questions each.
Lesson 1: The text for this lesson is from a Time for Kids article. The questions for this lesson relate only to the last section of the article, “Backpack Tips”. There is a graph in the excerpt section that corresponds to data in the excerpt. The Lexile® for this specific excerpt is 1140.
Lesson 2: The text for this lesson is from a Time for Kids article. The questions for this lesson relate only to the last section of the article: “A Worldwide Concern.” There is a graph in the excerpt section that corresponds to the data in the excerpt. The Lexile® for this specific excerpt is 1160.
Lesson 3: The article and corresponding map for this lesson are from an article from the National Geographic Education site. The questions for this lesson come from the second section in the article: “Measuring Undernourishment.” The map legend is included in the excerpt section. The Lexile® for this specific excerpt is 1090.
In this CIM, there are 3 lessons designed to take under 10 minutes each. They can be done together on a single day (although that is NOT the intent of the product) or on 3-5 separate days.
This CIM uses the "I do," "we do," "you do" model of instruction.
The questions can be used as either multiple choice or short/extended response. These questions are intended for in-class instruction and NOT intended for homework, summative/formal assessment, or portfolio/extended work. The questions are not exhaustive of those that could be asked for this standard, but are a good place to start.
This product is a .zip with 3 separate files: the teacher version (with script), student version without answer choices (open-response), and student version with answer choices (multiple-choice). Student versions may be copied and distributed as necessary for purchasing teacher's classes.
The teacher pages include the questions for display (both with and without answer choices), the excerpts for display, and the teacher script.
