This SMART Notebook file presents students with information about the parts of a gumball machine. Colorful photographs accompany the text. There is a multiple choice quiz the students can take, and an acrostic poem about using a gumball machine. There is also a group writing activity which can be done on the SMART board to create another acrostic poem about gumballs or the gumball machine. This file includes an attachment with a PDF file which will give you even more resources. The preview file here shows what you will get with the PDF file.
Based on my judgement along with readability tests, the reading level is at 3rd grade, 2nd semester. If you have first or second graders that are reading above grade level, they might also enjoy this resource.
The PDF file is also sold individually. This file is for both the PDF and the SMART Notebook presentation.
