Help your students dig deeper into nonfiction reading with these earth science close reading passages and questions.
In this product, there are five nonfiction reading passages based on a variety of topics related to earth science. Since we all have students reading on many different reading levels, I've written each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation a little easier for you. This is a great way to integrate informational reading to your instruction!
There are also three sets of questions for each set of passages. The first set of questions requires students to cite evidence in the text, and the second set of questions require students to analyze the text structure and word choice of the passage. The third set of questions have students respond to a question that promotes high order thinking.
