What's that flashing in the night sky? It's a FIREFLY! Your students will be firefly experts with the help of this packet.
This firefly packet covers the following topics:
- All About Fireflies
- A Firefly's Body
- Where Do Fireflies Live?
- What Do Fireflies Eat?
- How Do Fireflies Glow?
- Firefly Lifecycle
In this 103 page packet, I've included:
Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing fireflies (these real life photographs will capture the attention of even your most reluctant students!).
Part 2: Hook 'Em: These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your firefly unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.
Part 3: Differentiated All About Firefly Mini-Books - These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction.There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale. Text-Dependent Response sheets follow!
Part 4: Graphic Organizers, True/False Sorting Activity, Vocabulary Books, and Independent Practice Sheets
In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous firefly web resources and books!
