This set covers all of the standards for Tennessee 3rd grade. Please see the contents and the standards listed below. Each of the 5 passages are written for engagement. The answers are a new style where students have to find their evidence in the text, use a corresponding colored pencil/marker/crayon to answer each of the questions. This is easy to grade and encourages deep reading of the non-fiction text. Along with the passages there are activities for students to complete in interactive notebooks and in group setting. So much fun!
