This close reading bundle is aligned to the CCSS. Each passage comes with a set of text dependent questions. This is the 1st bundle in my "Exploring Habitats" series. Each will focus on animals that live in a specific habitat. Passages will give students information about the animals, the habitat, and adaptations. They were designed for my third graders but could be used with other grade levels easily.
I use these passages to have students practice guided reading skills that they learned during group time such as STP (Stop-think-paraphrase) or green/yellow/red questions. These passages are a great way to integrate science with reading. They can be used in a station, as homework, as a fast finisher activity, or in reading groups. The questions are a great way to check for comprehension.
Passages in this set:
The Arctic Wolf
The Arctic Hare
The Beluga Whale
The Arctic Fox
The Dall Sheep
Students could also use the passages to compare and contrast.
**Due to the varying nature of answers to the questions, no answer key has been added.
