These colorful and informative gazettes are sure to grab the attention of any young student, but especially those interested in science. This product includes 4 fabulous front/back reading passages that students will find engaging and educational. Included are 4 different invasive species currently plaguing the United States. Students love the colorful pictures and they are quick to read. They can be used in a science center, an extension activity or a mini lesson. I usually have students select one of the passages and become an expert. Then, they meet with 3 other students that read the other gazettes and share what they've learned.
