PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an informative, interesting and challenging informational text entitled "How Camels Make Themselves At Home in the Desert." Students will be reading in the content area of science. They will find out how camels are able to survive in dry desert habitats. They will also learn the similarities and differences between one-humped and two-humped camels. A visual device of the letter "B" will help them understand that Bactrian camels have two humps. Vocabulary explicitly taught in the text and in context is: habitat, vehicle, dromedary, and bactrian. The 10 multiple choice questions assess vocabulary words as well as the reading comprehension skills of determining main ideas, making inferences, locating details, and drawing conclusions. Questions are modeled after those on standardized tests, so the lesson provides a helpful test prep. There are colorful drawings of both the one-humped and a two-humped camel, which reinforce the info in the text. An extension of the lesson could be to have students fill in a Venn Diagram with information about the two types of camels. This could be something for students who finish early to do or otherwise. This product is on a word document that is easy to edit where you see fit.
