This packet is perfect for learning about these huge snowstorms, a mini science reading unit, or a fun informational reading unit! It has been a great hit with many teachers and reluctant readers.

This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities.
