If you are looking for a great way to cross the curriculum with science and reading, then this download is just for you! This product is sure to engage and excite your students when learning about Fact and Opinion. With clipart from the nation's #1 reality television show, Duck Dynasty, your students are bound to grasp the concept of identify statements that tell a fact or an opinion.
If the task card states a fact, the students will respond with "That's a fact, Jack". If the task card states an opinion, the students will respond with, "Happy, happy, happy."
The statements on the task cards include facts and opinions about plants. Your students that are above grade level (red cards) will have task cards that cover the parts of a plant, the plant life cycle, and photosynthesis. Your on grade level students (blue cards) will have task cards that cover the parts of a plant and the plant life cycle. Your students that are below grade level (yellow cards) will have task cards that cover the parts of a plant.
My plans are to provide each literacy group with expository texts that apply for their set of task cards as mentioned above. I will also provide the on level students (blue cards) with a blank diagram of the plant life cycle and the below level students (yellow cards) with a blank diagram of the parts of a plant. Both groups will complete the diagram based on previous background knowledge.
I did not include the expository texts and diagrams in this download because it was not created by me. However, I was very impressed with the plant packet that I purchased from the following TPT store that did include the texts and diagrams. You may research your own diagrams and texts or please visit her store if you are interested purchasing her product:
