Ever wanted a colorful, fun activity for students to do after reading their choice of nonfiction?

Here it is.

It's designed to be flexible. For example, let a student choose an article on NewsELA and then fill this in on TPT Digital (through Google Classroom) or paper.

You can either use this as two separate handouts for different occasions, or combine the two to make one double-sided hand out.

The questions were inspired by the practices suggested in "Reading Nonfiction: Notice & Note Stances, Signposts, and Strategies" by Beers and Probst.

Have fun with it!
