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!

-Australia (2 different texts)
