Product Description
I created this spring themed nonfiction text practice on plant reproduction because my students struggle with stating a claim and using TWO details to support their answer in short response questions. Included in this product is a nonfiction text "How Do Plants Make Babies" written at two Lexile ranges (900-990 range and 670-770 range) for differentiation. The text is accompanied by six multiple choice questions and two short response questions with graphic organizers to promote using a claim and two text details when answering.

Use this product as a whole group teaching tool, homework, small group activity, or as a center for students who have had experience with answering questions using claims and text details.

*Complete answer keys* are included for each page with the CCSS listed next to each question. Short response questions include an answer key of model responses. I hope you and your students enjoy this seasonal way to incorporate the standards by using this nonfiction text about plants!

Although I created this product to use with my 4th graders, it can be used in grades 4-6 when keeping the CCSS of varying text complexity in mind.
