Product Description
****** This set is part of the All About the World Set ******

This set covers MOST of the standards for Tennessee 3rd grade. Please see the contents and the standards listed below.

Each of the 6 nonfiction 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 individually and/or in group setting. So much fun!

SW read about:
-Australia (2 different texts)
-New Zealand
-The Great Barrier Reef
-Ayers Rock

AND there is a letter from a Aussie who lives in New Zealand now that gives MORE details for research!
