Informational Text Christmas
Informational Text for December features to familiar Christmas plants-- Poinsettias and mistletoe.
“The Red Flower from Mexico,” traces the poinsettia’s journey from a wild shrub growing in Mexico to the most popular potted plant in the United States and Canada.
“Kissing under the Hemiparasite” takes a look at mistletoe’s ancient reputation as a magical plant and its perceived mystical qualities that somehow managed to jell into our modern kissing-under-the mistletoe tradition.
Both informational texts are accompanied by a variety of 15 CCSS aligned question. Full answer keys, including short answer questions, are provided.
These informational texts are written for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, although some high school classrooms and gifted 4th and 5th graders will also enjoy the contents.
Great seasonal resource for teaching Informational Text reading skills or for skills assessment.
