PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product contains 2 completely differentiated units on the same topic to serve the needs varying levels of students). I use this unit in conjunction with my reading literature unit on Lost! by David McPhail. The unit includes:

Articles on bears (three different levels)
Articles on bears as mammals (two levels)
A bear's adaptations (two levels)
Offspring and adult information
Relationship between adult and offspring
Annotation symbols page
Background building photos (2 pages)
Writing your thinking page
Two-column note taking page
Bubble map note taking
Text features page
Glossary
Planning informational writing
Writing master
Three activities based on Next Generation Science Standard: Structure, Function, and Information Processing (L-LS1-1, L-LS1-2, L-LS3-1)

This bundle includes TWO versions of the unit: one for advanced or at grade level students and one unit that scaffolds instruction to help make differentiation easier for those who need scaffolds.

This unit would be appropriate for first or second grade (or some high kindergarten students).

I appreciate you looking and I love feedback (you can earn TPT credits too).

THIS UNIT WAS TOTALLY REVISED AUGUST 2015 TO INCLUDE 25 MORE PAGES. PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD IF YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT.
