PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Human Body Systems Unit ~ Close Reading ~ Text Dependent Questions : Need to teach the HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS? Our 252 page, comprehensive human body unit contains everything needed to teach a rigorous unit on the human body. Seven original CLOSE Reading nonfiction passages (Respiratory, Circulatory, Digestive, Nervous, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems) were created to use the CLOSE READING comprehension strategy to teach your students about the human body systems ( not familiar with CLOSE reading? It’s okay, we have instructions and anchor charts to help you incorporate it into your teaching). There are text dependent questions aligned with each passage, a set of vocabulary cards with definitions to accompany each nonfiction text, our best-selling research reports on the circulatory, digestive, and respiratory systems. A variety of other graphic organizers and activities are included.

We do encourage you to supplement with any other books, videos, and websites that you already use; they will blend nicely with our CLOSE reading passages. You can use this unit in its entirety, or “pick and choose” the components to meet the needs of your students.

This unit contains the following elements:

• Seven CLOSE reading nonfiction passages:
1. Introduction to The Human Body
2. The Respiratory System
3. The Circulatory System
4. The Digestive System
5. The Nervous System
6. The Skeletal System
7. The Muscular System
• Seven sets of vocabulary cards with definitions, one for each CLOSE reading passage to scaffold and support vocabulary
• CLOSE Reading Instructions PowerPoint (or handout) explaining the steps of CLOSE Reading
• Anchor Charts for student annotation and Discussion Topics for CLOSE Reading
• Seven sets of “Text Dependent Questions”, one set for each CLOSE reading passage
The Human Body Research Reports ( we have included our three top-selling body systems research report in this product; the circulatory system, the digestive system, and the respiratory system. If you have purchased one or more of these already, they are the same products that we sell separately). These reports can also be used as performance tasks. Your students may have to do some additional research for these reports.
• Common Core Essential Questions (these writing pieces can be put on your writing wall to keep writing current and visible as you incorporate writing into your science unit of study.)
• Cognitive Content Dictionary (to be made into a “book” for student vocabulary words, definitions, and pictures.
• A Venn Diagram to Compare and Contrast
• KWL Chart ( you can use this at the beginning of the unit to ascertain what they may already know about the human body)
• A Tree Map Graphic Organizer ( a grammar component for students to analyze the words in the passages and their parts of speech)
• CLOZE worksheets (a fill-in the blank) worksheet and answer sheet to assess vocabulary attainment and your students’ ability to utilize context clues. There are seven worksheets and answer sheets included to match the seven close reading passages.
• Credits for Graphics

Please supplement these close reading passages with any of your favorite human body books, videos, or websites to add resources
