Product Description
Desert Animals: Informational Article, QR Code Research Page & Fact Sort is a set of 12 informational articles all about Desert Animals located in the North American Desert. These articles are full of interesting facts and details that students can use during reading and writing activities.

Includes an article about each animal in two formats (two-page color photos & one-page text), QR Codes for online articles and videos about the animal and a fact sort sheet where students can sort facts about each animal's attributes, actions and environment.

I use these articles as a resource when researching and writing about animals. We read the article, look at a variety of web sites, and watch a couple videos to gather all our facts about the animal. Once we have the facts, we sort the facts into categories and then write our research report.

The articles are written at about a second / third grade reading level and are controlled for sentence length and complexity.

These articles compliment my Informational Writing Tools packet.

Animals include:
Banded Gila Monster
Cactus Pygmy Owl
Cactus Wren
Desert Kangaroo Rat
Desert Tortoise
Sonoran Pygmy Toad

Also available:
African Animals
Rainforest Animals

This product does not include any graphic organizers or comprehension questions. There are graphic organizers in the Informational Writing Tools packet or Graphic Organizers Product.

The Desert Animals will not be a part of my current Animal Article BUNDLE.

Some videos are on YouTube, so be sure you can access the web site at school.

See the preview for additional information.
