Celebrate Earth Day with close reading! This Common Core aligned close reading focuses on main idea, vocabulary, and text-based evidence. Students will read the Earth Day informational text three times, each time focusing on a different reading skill.
Everything is ready to print and includes:
Vocabulary – 10 Divided Circle Maps:
