This lesson was written using the Vertical Alignment for STAAR-ALT2 using the Grade 3 and 4 Essence statements regarding Informational Texts. The text breaks up and asks questions after every paragraph dealing with identifying main ideas and supporting details as well as identifying the author's purpose for the text. Included is the Lesson Plan, Adaptive Information Text with picture cues built into the text as well as questions built into the text and answer picture choices to cut out to allow the students to place the answers within the text. Enjoy!!!
