These informational reading selections about winter include tons of interesting facts. I created each of these original themed selections (8 in all) based on the specific Common Core needs of 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. Each selection is two pages long and includes a two-page worksheet with complete answer key.

Sample: Landforms and Erosion

Landforms shape the world around us. If the Earth was as flat and smooth as a marble without any landforms, the entire surface of the Earth would be covered in water, an ocean planet!

But the Earth is covered with many different landforms above and below the ocean waters.

- Water is the number one force of erosion. It can move rocks and earth materials long distances. Water changes the shape of the land around us, it even changes the shape of coastlines every day.

- Wind can pick up and blow earth particles such as dirt and sand. These bits of sand in the air can blast against larger rocks, eroding them away.

- Ice is strong. Glaciers can pick up everything from tiny grains of sand to large boulders and slowly move them long distances.

Standards-based reading (and science!) fun

Common Core State Standards include an updated focus on reading informational texts. These selections and worksheets fit perfectly with the standards below. I have included are multiple-choice, short answer and some extended response items.

This reading packet includes selections on:

- Landforms and erosion
- Landforms and deposition
- Landforms and weathering
