Three informative writing units, each with Full Lesson Plans (3 weeks in all). Each has higher level thinking with compare and contrast activities involving animals, graphic organizers, and final products. The unit "Compare and Contrast Bats and Birds" uses the book "Stellaluna", which keeps the kids engaged! These units follow Common Core standards, and are differentiated for levels and ages. They are great for writers workshop, literacy, and science centers. They have been student tested in my classroom, and the kids loved them!
