Product Description
This free DNA Informational Text reading is based on Watson and Crick's famous one-page article from 1953, announcing their discovery of the structure of the DNA molecule. It comes with graphic organizers to help your students read and understand a classic scientific paper.

This is a fantastic way to implement the Common Core State Standards of reading informational text into your science curriculum. Students will read the famous one-page paper and complete a 4-page graphic organizer.

This article and accompanying graphic organizers are perfect for:
1. Classwork or homework assignment.
2. A quick and ready lesson for your substitute folder.
3. Early finishers.
4. Any Common Core lesson on information text.

Included in this product:
1. Watson and Crick Paper
2. Copyright Information
3. Teacher Guide and Instructions for Use
4. Four-page Graphic Organizer

If you are implementing Common Core State Standards into your class, this is a marvelous (and short!) piece of informational text to use with your students.

The graphic organizers look best when printed in color, but print perfectly fine if you print using the grayscale setting on your printer.
