The Grand Canyon Activity Pack from Beaker & Book is designed to use with the book Grand Canyon: A Trail through Time by Linda Vieira. However, if you don’t have this book, or don’t have access to it in your school’s library, a Reader’s Theater script titled Meet the Grand Canyon is included and contains the pertinent information students need to know to complete the activities in this pack.
The science activities include concepts relating to landforms, weathering and erosion, and animal adaptations.
The literacy activities include an anticipation guide, comprehension, summarizing, vocabulary, fluency-building, and report writing.
This pack includes:
• Readers Theater Script
• Reading Anticipation Guide and Answer Key
• Post-Reading Debriefing and Answer Key
• Landform Vocabulary Activities
• Rocky Changes Lab with 5 Stations
• Organisms of the Grand Canyon: 6 Reading Passages with Literacy Activities
• 4-Square Organism Report
These activities are aligned to TEKS student expectations found in Grades 3-5.
We love helping teachers and students make deep connections with science concepts using literature and literary elements.
