Help students explore the country of China and Chinese New Year while practicing close reading skills. I find that my students love learning about new places and are willing to practice close reading skills while exploring a new topic. Multi-paragraph texts are followed by text-dependent questions or activities that help students identify the main idea and supporting details. An assessment is provided.
This unit is slightly more difficult than an earlier Main Idea packet in my store. This packet includes exercises for multi-paragraph texts. The text-dependent questions are also a little more difficult and require careful reading. There may be more than one answer that is correct, but only one that can be answered from the text.
You may choose to use a few passages or all. It is not necessary to use all passages to use the assessment. It has its own text.
There is one short writing exercise.
There is a fun “how to draw a Chinese Dragon” lesson included.
