This is a science literacy unit that is great for the holidays or December.  Students will read and write informational text in this reindeer unit.  

Did you know that Santa’s reindeer were most likely female? This is because both male and female reindeer have antlers and the male reindeer shed their antlers in early December.

Did you know that caribou is just another name for reindeer and both of the words are interchangeable and refer to the same animal?
