Take your students to the ocean with you as you read about these amazing ocean creatures! Your students won't be "CRABBY" as they practice an reading informational text about whales.
Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate social studies and science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these Horseshoe Crab differentiated close reading passages and comprehension questions. In this product, there are three nonfiction-reading passages based on horseshoe crabs and their habitats. If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. There are also text-based comprehension questions that correspond with the passages that includes an answer key.
