PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Two articles at different reading levels, and two pages of graphic information -- great for close reading and discussion! Integrate these into your lessons about winter, trees, New England, Canada, physical science, or even math!

Pages 1 and 2: A pair of eight-paragraph articles at two difficulty levels. The first one has been rated by online text analyzers as being solidly 4th grade, so you could use this one for advanced younger kids (my 2nd grade tester has no problem with it) and older elementary students. The second article has been rated by the same analyzers in the range of 6th through 8th grade. The second article also has vocabulary words highlighted (sap, dormant, xylem, phloem, photosynthesize, etc.). You can use these articles as Common Core informational texts.

Pages 3 and 4: Visual information and short texts. One is about sugar maples; the other is about syrup production. There’s only a little overlap with the long articles, so you can use all the materials together.

Pages 5 and 6: Questions and answers. These cover material in the simpler article, so all readers should be able to answer them. You can certainly add more sophisticated questions if you’d like. Older kids could do related math problems dealing with quantities, rates, and ratios.
