February is almost here and that means it's almost time for the groundhog to take the spotlight! This unit will help you teach your informational standards while your students learn about these cute little animals. This mini-unit is loaded with non-fiction goodies and wraps up with a groundhog research report.
Here is a list of what is included:
-Vocabulary words to print and display throughout the unit
-A full-sized informational text about groundhogs featuring loads of groundhog photographs
-A student reader about groundhogs with 3 slightly different versions to allow you to differentiate for your students' reading abilities
-Writing prompts for close reading/detail gathering
-Booklet for students to record facts throughout the study
-ABC order, word search, and adjectives printables (easy Morning Work!)
-Everything you need for your students to complete their own groundhog research report: Covers (including a cute but EASY groundhog craftivity option!), graphic organizers to help students organize their thinking, and various pages to help students showcase their knowledge of informational text features (such as a diagram, table of contents, and glossary)
