This packet contains a non-fiction, reading page on the following bats:
gray-headed flying fox
little red flying fox
I developed these because I really want my students to complete independent research on non-fiction topics. While researching real topics, I see my student's reading and writing skills soar! I have trouble finding resources for them that they can read independently. I have developed these research pages for them on specific bats (they requested the bats) to help them with their research.
When using these, I try to put at least one strong reader in each group. The group decides which bat they want to research. Students use the page at the end of the slide show to collect their data. When they finish, they share what they have learned about their bat with their classmates. I hope you find this useful for your students as well and see the success that I see!
