This close reading pack includes 4 close reading informational passages on a variety highly tested life science topics. Each passage also has 4 text dependent questions (TDQ's) that drive students back to the text to extrapolate the needed information. In addition, for every passage you will receive both an informational and a opinion / argument prompt the students can write to. Each prompt drives students back to the text asking them to use information or defend /support their answer from the text. An excellent complement to my Science Main Idea Task Card Activity Pack, this resource pack ties together the curriculum in a way that is essential with our limited time!
An excellent way to integrate ELA and science, this fantastic resource for upper elementary or middle school students and is great for daily review, centers, early finishers, or even whole class instruction.
