This gibberish filled article on dolphins teaches students the importance of using text features! Text features can help students to locate information, easily navigate a text, and can aid in understanding. Students uncover the importance of text features in this worksheet.
How To Use:
There are two ways to use this worksheet. You can use it as an exploration of text features, where students uncover the importance of text features through locating information in the gibberish filled article. You can also use this as an independent practice to review text features.
Towards the middle of the school year I realized that my students could name off text features, but they struggled with why it was important to know them and how to use them effectively. This worksheet was designed to get students to understand how the features of a text can aid in the understanding of a text and even help to locate important information. Remember, teaching resources should never be boring.. always Teach in Technicolor!
