What is in this resource?

The first four passages are informational text- something our students always enjoy and need more of! This set has passages specifically about forms of seed dispersal. A two-page quiz is also provided. The sections of the quiz are numbered so you can use either page by itself or both pages together.

Why use informational text?

There are so many reasons to incorporate informational reading with your reading centers and seatwork. If you are like me, you are always searching for tasks to use to keep students engaged in meaningful independent work. This set is perfect! Reading levels are ideal for upper 3rd to 5th grades.
