This Christmas Close reading activity is a spin-off of Christmas Around the World. It has a zoo theme and is an informational text reading activity in booklet form or available as separate pages for Christmas Reading.
The 7 informational articles are about 7 animals from around the world. The articles contain facts about the animals as well as information about the animal in winter and in the zoos. There is a page in the booklet with close reading questioning, finding text evidence, referring to the text and word work activities for each article. The final page of the booklet asks students to color the continent which matches where the animal lives. The animals included in this activity are:
European pond turtle
**If you have my Winter in the Zoo product, please do not purchase this one as the articles are the same but the clip art is different.
