Book Study: Octopuses, Squids, and Cuttlefish by Trudi Strain Trueit: I have a wide range of readers in my 2nd grade classroom and I created this book study so some of my students can do their own book study since I cannot meet with them as much as I would like. This document includes the following activities:
-Coleoid Family Illustrations: Students will draw a picture of an octopus, squid, and cuttlefish.
-Coleoid Escape: Students will complete an illustration of an octopus to camouflage it. Students will also color a cuttlefish and show it releasing ink to get away.
-Comprehension Questions: I've included questions for each member of the Coleoid family. There are 2 pages for both octopuses and squid, and one page for cuttlefish.
-Creative Writing: Students will pretend that they have an octopus for a pet. They will draw and write about what they would teach their octopus to do.
-I have included an answer key for all of the written comprehension questions.
I hope this book study guide will help you and your students. I'll add more so make sure to follow my store to stay updated!
