Description

Celebrate Earth Day with these fun passages that touch on protecting the environment, ecosystems, recycling, raising awareness, and more!

These quick reading passages put a fun spin on challenging students to think about multiple perspectives/point-of-views. Students will read a short story from the perspective of one bystander, and then write the story from two different characters' points-of-view!

Example:

Students will read a short passage about a student who organized a park clean-up. Students will then rewrite the passage as one of the students using context clues and character traits. Next, students will personify the Earth and write the passage from the Earth's perspective!

FEATURES

• Five short reading passages that challenge your young writers to rewrite the story from another character's point-of-view!

• Students will look for conflict, problems, solutions, emotions, and character traits to help them craft their stories!

• Students will learn about why Earth Day is important and how to help!

• Each passage comes with three assessment questions on plot, character traits, setting, context clues, and more! Questions are common core aligned.

• Contains fun clip-art of each character and engaging, leveled writing!

Products for all students!
