Winter Reading At the Zoo is a fun way to practice reading skills. 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 Christmas Around the Zoo, please do not purchase this. The articles are the same but the clip art is updated.
