Description

Informational Reading Passage – The Pet Rock

This packet includes an informational article about the Pet Rock phenomenon in the 1970s and how its inventor became an instant millionaire. After a close reading of the article, students will answer questions on main ideas, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. A coordinating creative writing prompt will help develop critical thinking skills on the topic.

The reading level is sixth and seventh grade. It is in the Lexile stretch band for fifth grade and the basic level for eighth grade.

No prep! Just print and go. Great for substitutes.
