This purchase is for a DAILY SCIENCE informational article which is ideal for science or language arts classrooms. These articles provide a perfect, and short, article that showcases a wide selection of science themes.
Each article and assignment should take 5-10 minutes (depending on grade and student reading ability) which makes them ideal for classroom warm-ups / bell ringers, extra credit, or time filler work for early finishers. I often use the articles for inclusion during exams or tests where a short informational reading passage helps prepare students for state testing reading selections.
I have also included an author purpose chart which can help strengthen student ability to identify in each paragraph and find evidence to support whether the author is writing to: inform, describe, explain, or persuade.
This daily science article focuses on a new conservation plan aimed at helping to protect global shark populations. A perfect informational article for any language arts, animal unit, or science classroom especially on Earth Day.
Included with this purchase:
1 – DAILY SCIENCE ARTICLE
2 – QUESTION SHEET
3 – ENLARGED ARTICLE (perfect for warm-up display on Smartboard or whiteboard)
4 – ANSWER KEY
5 – AUTHOR PURPOSE CHART
This assignment is provided as an MS-Word document to allow easy editing to best fit the needs of your students.
Thank you for your purchase and for taking the time to leave me positive feedback.
