This resource includes five fictional forest animal stories, each followed by a comprehension page which asks for short answers. The "Who, What, When, Why, and How" questions help students learn to recall specific story facts. Five stick puppets are provided to encourage students to retell the story or use them with a puppet play. Vocabulary word cards, a vocabulary illustration page, and a survey for data collection are also included. This is a great way to study an engaging topic while increasing reading and comprehension skills.
