This free cut-and-paste nonfiction reading printable activity is a great way to challenge your students to read more informational texts. While reading fictional texts is wonderful and also adds great value to learning, there is much importance to be placed on informational texts, as well. Encourage your students to read more of them with this fun challenge!

There are NO fictional genres listed in this freebie.

To learn more about this activity and how I use it in my classroom, head to my Nonfiction Reading Challenge Blog Post, where I detail it.

This Product Includes:

✓ A cut-and-paste printable
✓ A list of different types of nonfiction texts

How This Product Can Be Used:

✓ Students have to read at least 10 different types of nonfiction text.
✓ Students then cut out the acorn nut and glue it to the squirrel.
✓ Finally, students record their books on a reading log.

Final Notes:

While I recommend printing in color and laminating materials for future use, it is not necessary. These materials print just fine in grayscale.
