Desert Tortoise: Informational Article, QR Code Research & Fact Sort includes an article about desert tortoise in two formats (two-page color photos & one-page text), QR Codes for online articles and videos about desert tortoise and a fact sort sheet where students can sort facts about desert tortoise.
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.
Also available is an Desert Animals BUNDLE
that includes armadillos, banded gila monsters, bobcats, cactus pygmy owls, cactus wrens, coyotes, desert kangaroo rats, desert tortoises, fire ants, jackrabbits, rattlesnakes, and Sonoran desert toads. Purchasing the BUNDLE will save you 50% off purchasing each animal individually.
This article works well with my Informational Writing Tools
packet that scaffolds expository / informational writing about animals from researching facts to writing paragraphs.
This product does not include any graphic organizers or comprehension questions. Those are available in the Informational Writing Tools
or Graphic Organizers
The videos are on YouTube, so be sure you can access them at school.
