These differentiated informational text passages about bird migration will help students practice close reading skills in a fun & engaging way. This is a great resource to supplement any animal adaption unit.

With these reading comprehension passages, students will learn why some birds migrate south for the winter and north for the summer. They will also learn about the dangers they face and how birds survive their trips which cover thousands of miles.

This resource comes with 2 leveled reading passages and includes a high-interest and engaging topic that will captivate the interest of students! Students will be required to use close reading skills to practice making logical inferences, citing textual evidence, and drawing conclusions.

This resource is aligned to the anchor standard that refers to reading text closely:

ELA Reading Standard 1: “Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it, cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.”

INCLUDED IN DOWNLOAD:

  • Annotation Guides for students (2 different sizes)
  • Teacher Notes/Guides
  • 2 pages of comprehension questions that follow a close reading model of citing textual evidence

A detailed guide to understanding a close reading model is also included and follows the steps below:

  • 1st Reading: General Understanding (answering basic recall questions)
  • 2nd Reading: Vocabulary: (identifying the meaning of unfamiliar words using text evidence to support understanding)
  • 3rd Reading: Key Details (citing text evidence, using inferencing skills, and constructing a written response while digging deeper into the text)

EASILY DIFFERENTIATE INSTRUCTION!

These reading comprehension passages are written at 2 different levels to allow for differentiation during instruction. The content of the 2 passages are the same, but the reading levels are different. Questions about the content are the same. This makes it easy for you to provide students with the same questions and activity sheets while also allowing students to practice close reading skills on their reading level.

Each reading passage is leveled with special symbols at the bottom left corner to denote difficulty levels.
