This informational text about that pesky insect, the housefly, includes content about the four stages in its life cycle. Included are three worksheets which were developed to meet the needs of students with varied abilities in your 2nd grade classroom.
Question sheet #1 is for your more advanced learners who are able to give answers using extended responses and includes main idea, supporting details, cause and effect, sequencing and contrasting. Worksheet #2 was developed for your typical 2nd grade learner who is beginning to answer some extended response questions, but still needs some guidance and review of terms. Worksheet #3 is for those students who are performing below grade level and includes more literal and multiple choice questions.
The story is factual as well as fun to read.
The questions are aligned with 2nd grade Common Core Standards of 2.RIT.1, 2.RIT.2, 2RIT.5 and 2.RIT.10
