This product is also included in an Elementary Writing Tools Bundle for a savings of over 20%.

There are not informational texts included in this packet; however, I have pointed you to resources (texts and videos) when applicable. Use them or other texts to discover facts about each animal. The animals highlighted in this resource include: sea turtles, spade foot toad, wolves, ladybugs, bats, polar bears, caribou, and penguins.

I have additional informational articles about wild animals in my store. Those products include an article (in two formats), research page with QR codes, and fact sort sheet similar to the sorts in this packet.

Informational Articles:
African Animals
Rainforest Animals
Life Cycle Animals
Coral Reef Animals

This is a packet of tools for Informational Writing. It is not a complete unit or program, but a collection of what I have used in my classroom while teaching a unit on Informational writing for second grade. This is similar to my Narrative Writing Tools in that it is not a complete unit, but resources to teach the genre.

Use the resources to fit your classroom, students, and writing topics. If you’d like anything added to the packet or changed, please, let me know.

Please, see the preview for additional views and information.
