This is a nonfiction packet contain five different articles all having a common theme of Taking Care of Our Earth! It mentions ecosystems, Earth Day, endangered species, food chains, saving the Rain Forest, and recycling.
These texts have been written on a fourth grade reading level and make students feel successful when reading about new scientific concepts. Each article has a multiple choice comprehension question, vocabulary block, a space to illustrate the new concept, and a once sentence summary statement.
These short nonfiction texts work great for centers, morning work, homework, whole group, or small group work. I've also had great success with gluing these pages into our Science journals. Students then have the chance to go back and reread information.
The five texts included are:
Recycle, Reuse, and Reduce
Saving the Rain Forest
