PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Three related science articles about plant stems and tree trunks. Questions and answers included. Use as a standalone activity, or integrate into your units on plants, trees, gardens, seasons, or food and nutrition!

1. What do stems do?
2. Tree rings (with figures, captions, and sidebar)
3. The stems we eat

Each article is written for older elementary kids (grades 3-5). They also have alternate text written for a middle school reading level (grades 6-8), but covering essentially the same information. Great for in-class differentiation! The second article has figures, captions, and a sidebar to complement the text.

Paragraphs are numbered so you can use the articles easily for additional reading comprehension work: topic sentences, author’s purpose, using evidence from the text, close reading, comparing articles, and so on. Suitable for Common Core informational text requirements.
