Product Description
Use part or all of this Close Reading activity. I'll use it in the beginning of the year since many of my students play soccer. I created this unit because I was inspired by the World Cup this summer, and know my students will love learning about Brazil as they discuss their favorite sport.

I have set this lesson up for 3 different reads. There is also enough information here that I can use part of it to model exactly how to do a close read.

This Product Includes:
- A student Cover
- Introduction
- Coffee
- Amazon Rain Forest
- Spoken Language
- Seasons
- Beaches
- Special Beaches with a video link
- Lagoons in the Desert
- History of Brazil
- Brazilian Independence
- Close Reading Guide for Students
- Close Reading Guide Answer Sheets
- Poster for Close Reading Annotations- I've included this because many teachers are new to close reading. My annotation marks line up with the Doug Fisher model of close reading.
- Bookmarks for Close Reading Annotations
