Non-fiction is difficult to read for many students. This packet is geared to explain the characteristics of birds so that students can recognize what makes them special. The packet contains 3 other activity worksheets. The 3 separate activities include:
1. An extra information sheet highlighting 2 or 3 specific birds. (This extra information is used to help students reflect on what they already know, what may have been a misconception and something that surprised them, a new learning.)
2. A worksheet where students can record what they noticed while reading. Nonfiction allows us to discover "WOWs" as readers.
3. A cloze activity to support students who may need scaffolding in order to make connections to the topic.
