Product Description
Informational Text Seasonal

This informational text reading resource treats your students to a new view of February 14th with “Hearts and Ferris Wheels.”

Informational Text Hearts
The first informational text, “Getting to the Heart of the Matter,” starts in ancient Egypt for the beginnings of the mix-ups and misconceptions about the human heart that were finally unscrambled less than 500 years ago. Still, they keep hanging around in our language as idioms, which we dust off and wear out each Valentine’s day—bless our hearts!

Informational Text Ferris Wheel
Bet you didn’t know that February 14th is also Ferris Wheel Day! “The Engineer with Wheels in His Head” tells the story of the world’s first Ferris Wheel, built by George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. (born on February 14th) for the Chicago World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 (aka The Chicago’s World Fair.)

Each informational text is accompanied by 15 CCSS aligned questions. Full answer keys are included. CCSS alignments are listed in the answer keys, not the questions.
