This is a document to use in an integrated lesson on social studies and ELA in 2nd grade using the following standards:
• Literacy.RF.2.3 Know and apply grade level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words.
• Social Studies: 2.G.1.2 Interpret the meaning of symbols and the location of physical and human features on a map (cities, railroads, highways, countries, continents, oceans, etc.).
(SS Standard is a North Carolina Essential Standard)
Reviews the reading strategy of "chunking" by holding students accountable for showing words they've chunked. Paragraph is about the 7 continents.
Differentiation: Use the first worksheet for higher students and the second one for lower students. There is not much difference, but I took out some of the long words on the second page. (***To tell the difference, the first page's title is marked by quotes around "Chunking".)
1st page=higher students
2nd page=lower students
*This worksheet does go along with the "Chunking and Continents" Integrated Lesson Plan on my page, but can be used separately to fit your needs as well.
