This 36 slide PowerPoint Presentation reviews a wide variety of basics that come from using informational text- a major component of Common Core. How to begin basic research, the resource materials, text features, reference materials, and internet usage is all a part of this PowerPoint test review. The answers are included as a separate sheet. Middle grades would be the best fit for this file. Advanced/Gifted 5th graders may benefit from this too.
BONUS: A text feature mix-and-match activity. Use it as a warm-up or as a wrap-up / ticket out the door.
