This is a unit of close reading passages for winter reading comprehension. These reading comprehension passages will increase your students science literacy as they learn about behavioral adaptations such as hibernation and migration. The text dependent questions will encourage your students to read back into the text to answer the comprehension questions. Students will be engaged with this great set of winter reading passages and activities. This unit includes six pages of high interest informational text, reading response pages with comprehension questions, worksheets, writing prompts, a quiz, interactive notebook flaps, and more. This unit also includes a slideshow concept attainment lesson on hibernation.  This is a very low prep unit that would be great for students in grades 3-6. This is a great start to teaching about animal adaptations and it the difference between behavioral adaptations and structural adaptations. We will also look at why and how animals migrate and hibernate. Great for winter reading activities.

There is a suggested schedule for this unit. It will take about 12 days if all the pages are used. There are six pages of informational text: three on hibernation and three on migration.

The reading level is appropriate for high 3rd grade- 6th grade students.

This resource is aligned with NGSS LS4.C: Adaptation

From the Strand Biological Evolution: Unity and Diversity and CCSS for reading informational Text. The focus is on the behavioral adaptation of hibernation and migration and how organisms benefit from these behavioral adaptations. The informational text passages go along nicely with the following NGSS standards:

3-LS3-2. Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

3-LS4-2. Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same

NGSS 3-LS2-1. Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.

3-LS4-3. Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive

less well, and some cannot survive at all.

4-LS1-1. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support

survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing

NGSS MS LS2-4 Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
