This download contains a reading passage about Earth Day written on a fifth grade level. Students will read about some Earth Day history and customs. Students will read a full page passage about the holiday to answer 6 multiple choice questions and 4 short answer questions. The short answer questions require students to recall information from the passage, restate an event from the passage in their own words, and use context clues to define a term. Students will also identify true and false statements by cutting and glueing statements. They will correct the false statements to make them true. Students will color recycling bins to identify fact or opinion statements. A writing extension is also included, as students write a persuasive letter.
Thanks so much for looking!
