Get your students ready for the new PARCC testing and cover the following common core standards with this activity!
Common Core standards covered:
Allow your students to read the short informational stories on butterflies and honeybees. Comprehension questions included that rely on details from the reading material. Then watch the suggested Youtube videos that provide more information on the topic. First watch them for fun and then watch them to gather information. Use the "butterfly" Venn diagrams to complete a three paragraph writing piece. Also included is an additional writing piece that focuses on the "point of view" of the butterfly or honeybee. Two posters for your classroom on compare and contrast.
A great way to cover writing skills and welcome Spring into your classroom!
