An informative, effective, and engaging activity covering bacteria - what it is, structure/function of a bacteria cell, and different types of bacteria.
Many students these days have a terribly difficult time comprehending nonfiction & informational text - textbooks, websites, articles etc. This product offers a more simple option for students to read, apply, and comprehend what they read - This is a GREAT tool to help your students overcome the obstacle of comprehending science text. These "Read & Apply" products are designed to cover ONE basic science topic per lesson for students to build a solid foundation before moving to the next topic & building that "house of knowledge" on the foundation.
This product contains:
- Reading Comprehension Tips
- A reading passage supported by graphics (half page)
- Magnified reading passage option to use on a doc cam, to accommodate students who have a hard time reading the smaller print, to post at a center, etc.
- Bacteria diagram to label
- Comprehension flip flaps & a writing prompt (comparing bacteria cells to plant/animal cells)
- Photo examples/answer key
Each reading passage is simple & not overwhelmingly long like textbooks are. Students can listen to you read, read silently, in partners, or in small groups highlighting important words and concepts as they go. The students then apply what they read with an activity & responding to a writing prompt.
Don't use interactive notebooks??? Just use colored paper!! Glue the passage to one side and have the students do the interactive activity on the other! Can easily be 3-hole punched to put in a binder, hung on the wall, or slide into a folder!!
This product would best fit with 4th-6th graders, but would be GREAT for a 7-8 grade remediation reading class or special ed! Would also be a great option for differentiation if you have just a few students in your class that are having a difficult time with their grade level text that you already use.
