This is an activity in which your students can learn about owls by becoming an expert in one area and hearing about 3 others. This is a Common Core-friendly activity, as your students are reading non-fiction and pulling out the main idea and important information, learning higher level vocabulary, rereading text and writing to explain their thinking.
I am including:
instructions for facilitating the jigsaw
4 different pages about owls for students to read
a printable page for students to write about the main idea
a printable page for students to focus on vocabulary from the text
a printable page for students to write about what they highlighted and why and to come up with two possible titles for their owl text
a graphic organizer to take notes as each person shares
