Product Description
Compare and Contrast The Author's Point of View The Bermuda Triangle

Two high interest nonfiction articles, written from two different points of view! Students will read "Killer Sea Farts" and "Alien Vortex." Both are original articles, two pages long, nonfiction, written by me. They investigate The Bermuda Triangle. Hundreds of planes and ships go missing in The Bermuda Triangle each year. Are the disappearances due to a hidden alien vortex? Or is there a logical explanation for these disappearances? Students will love reading about each theory and debating their own ideas! This is a close reading lesson that comes with teacher directions, graphic organizers, and much more!

Included:
Two original nonfiction articles
Step by step teacher directions (I do, We do, You do method of teaching)
Close reading poster
Close reading bookmark
