This download is a great way to integrate science into your literacy and writing block!
Students often have trouble organizing and rearranging information. The leveled graphic organizers in this download are designed to help students build these skills and make differentiation easy.
Templates can be used as planning pages and graphic organizers for student writing.
Help students fill out a template you feel is appropriate for their skill level. As they gain independence with a template, introduce a less structured template and encourage them to turn their lists and notes into full sentences and paragraphs.
Please note, these cards are designed to accompany a food chain science unit and include the vocabulary "carnivore, herbivore, omnivore, decomposer, and consumer."
While it is not necessary for students to know these words to use the cards, it is greatly beneficial for them to be familiar with these concepts.
Included in your download:
32 unique plant and animal cards are included (in color and black and white)
5 leveled templates
An instruction and ideas page
An example page
