You know that popular song from the movie Madagascar, “I like to move it, move it”. Well that is our tune for citing text evidence.
“You’ve got to prove-it prove-it.”
Use that fun jingle to start your lesson and your kids will have it stuck in their heads too!
These passages start off with an intriguing question. Perhaps something you have been wondering yourself!
* How Were the First Potato Chips Invented?
* What's a Perfect Game in Baseball?
* Who Invented Legos?
* What's the Hottest Planet?
* Do People Eat Stink Bugs?
* Who Invented the Trampoline?
* What's the Difference Between a Fruit and a Vegetable?
* Where Does the President Sleep?
* How Long Does It Take to Grow a Fingernail?
* Who Invented Corn Flakes?
The students will need to have crayons handy so they can underline where in the passage they found the answer.
Finally, the student will write their answer on the lines beside the questions.
My hope is that the children will enjoy trying to “prove-it prove-it” and apply this skill in other reading to learn tasks.
