If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this 62-page packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful informational text reading unit.
The digital version of each packet includes ready-made, visually-appealing Google slides for you to share with your class. They include interactive drag and drop annotation marks and fillable text dependent activities.
Each of the 5 passages included in this resource is provided in two differentiated reading levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. The reading level is given for each passage, along with a guide that provides specific readability levels. I've taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!

This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 5 tasks/activities for each passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities. Each passage and its corresponding activities offer a full-week's worth of close reading.
