Product Description
Close Reading: Life Cycles- This 60 page product contains 10 life cycle-themed non-fiction close reading passages with evidence-based questioning to go with each. Each passage is lexile leveled into 2 formats and also has a QR code which sends your students to a safe educational video on that animal. Great to use as a whole group lesson or in small group reading. This product contains:
-10 life cycle passages w/ QR codes
-Each article comes with a cover page, 2 leveled formats, QR code, graphic organizer, and flip book
-2 extra life cycle graphic organizers (can be used with any article)
-QR code cards (great for literacy centers)

The articles are about the following topics:
-Sea Turtles
-Praying Mantis
-Honey Bees
-Great White Sharks

I introduce the product with examples of how I use the articles in my personal classroom.

This packet is aligned with the Common Core, specifically the following standard:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.CCRA.R.1 Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
