-Study guide with texts from the PowerPoint
-Five texts about chinstrap penguins, representing the text structures of description, sequence, cause/effect, compare/contrast, and problem/solution
-Five texts about peregrine falcons, representing the text structures of description, sequence, cause/effect, compare/contrast, and problem/solution
-A text-specific graphic organizer for each text
-Text-dependent questions for each text
-A writing activity requiring students to synthesize information from multiple sources
-Lesson sequences for either an 8-day unit or a 15-day unit
