I found that our students have become so familiar with answering questions, but ASKING questions can be very difficult for them. The solution is here, with three very engaging ocean animals; sharks, sea turtles, and dolphins. In this pack, students are given the opportunity to answer questions about what they read, but even more opportunities to ask questions, and then find the answer! The passages are each 3 paragraphs and give plenty of information about the animal, but with the hopes of leaving them wanting to know MORE information.
Each passage comes with:
-a picture of the animal to put on an anchor chart to get students to write their questions
-a prereading graphic organizer for students to brainstorm their questions about the animal
-a page for answering 3 questions about the text
-a page for asking 3 "thin" questions that can be found directly in the text
-a page for asking 3 "thick" questions (example: I wonder why...)
-a page to ask questions that aren't answered in the text, so they can do their own research to find the answer!
I hope this helps your students become little question champions like it did with mine!
