The Life Cycle of a Butterfly:
3 Differentiated Reading Passages & accompanying activities will ask students to fill in the blank, match pictures to key vocabulary terms, label the events of the life cycle, and write about the life cycle using transition words. This activity would be great to introduce a unit on life cycles, but is generic enough to end the unit about the life cycle of a butterfly!
Geared toward Second Grade Georgia Science Standards but not specific.
Lexiles/Guided Reading Approximations: 490-L, 590-N, 650-P
Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate social studies and science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these Life Cycle of a Butterfly differentiated reading passages and comprehension questions. If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created the passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. I've leveled each passage with a symbol for high (square), mid (triangle), and low (circle) so that you can differentiate easily without students knowing. There are also open-ended questions to go along with the passages. Answer keys are provided. Perfect for guided reading small group instruction or literacy center stations.
