This Bats Reading Comprehension passage is great for scientific reading, practicing reading informational text, conservation, and environmental reading and would also be great for Halloween.

Students will learn that there are different types of bats and they have a variety of adaptations, feed on different types of foods, and care for their young. Students will love learning about bats.

Great for Halloween Reading or Scientific Reading.

This Bats Reading unit will take about a week to complete if you follow the close reading guide and if you choose to use all of the response pages. Answer keys are included. Great for grades 3-6.

While this unit does not completely cover the NGSS standards, It touches on and addresses concepts in the following standards:

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

NGSS 3-LS1-1. Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

NGSS 3-LS4-2. Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing

NGSS 4-LS1-1. Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

NGSS 4-LS1-2. Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.

This resource is also aligned with the science standards for Utah third grade.

Utah SEEd 3.2.1 Develop models to describe patterns of change that organisms go through during their life cycles. Emphasize that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles, but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death.

This low prep unit works great for sub plans or for when a teacher needs a high interest no-prep lesson for the week.

Great Halloween Reading!

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
NGSS3-LS1-1
Develop models to describe that organisms have unique and diverse life cycles but all have in common birth, growth, reproduction, and death. Changes organisms go through during their life form a pattern. Assessment of plant life cycles is limited to those of flowering plants. Assessment does not include details of human reproduction.
NGSS3-LS4-2
Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing. Examples of cause and effect relationships could be plants that have larger thorns than other plants may be less likely to be eaten by predators; and, animals that have better camouflage coloration than other animals may be more likely to survive and therefore more likely to leave offspring.
NGSS4-LS1-2
Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways. Emphasis is on systems of information transfer. Assessment does not include the mechanisms by which the brain stores and recalls information or the mechanisms of how sensory receptors function.
NGSS3-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. Examples of evidence could include needs and characteristics of the organisms and habitats involved. The organisms and their habitat make up a system in which the parts depend on each other.
NGSS3-LS2-1
Construct an argument that some animals form groups that help members survive.
