Can your students read the books in the library yet? I have created two levels of books that will help students research an animal and use text non-fiction text features such as table of contents, headings, photographs, bold print, labels, captions and the glossary to learn more about specific animals.
I have also included themed paper AND banner for their final report and a flip book for gathering information. These books can easily be used for guided reading groups as well.
I have also included the books as full pages as well in case you want students to look at them on a laptop, computer or smart board. This is a great way to differentiate in your class!
