Product Description

Aligns with NGSS Life Science Standard 3-LS1-1

An informative, effective, and engaging activity teaching students about life cycles and how unique they are but have clear similarities.

SEE PREVIEW for a sneak peek of what is included!

Many students these days have a terribly difficult time comprehending nonfiction & informational text - textbooks, websites, articles etc. This product offers a more simple option for students to read, apply, and comprehend what they read - This is a GREAT tool to help your students overcome the obstacle of comprehending science text. These "Read & Apply" products are designed to cover ONE basic science topic per lesson for students to build a solid foundation before moving to the next topic & building that "house of knowledge" on the foundation.

This product contains:

- Teacher prep guide & photo examples/answer key

- 1 reading passage over monarch butterflies life cycle

- 1 reading passage over honey bee life cycle

(both passages available in half page for INB or full page for easier reading)

- cut out pages for interactive activity (option to print in color or B&W)

- compare/contrast prompt to see the similarities and differences between the two life cycles (NGSS 3-LS1-1)

Each reading passage is simple & not overwhelmingly long like textbooks are. Students can listen to you read, read silently, in partners, or in small groups highlighting important words and concepts as they go. The students then apply what they read with an activity & responding to a writing prompt.

Don't use interactive notebooks??? Just use colored paper!! Glue the passage to one side and have the students do the interactive activity on the other! This would be great for a file folder project as well! Can easily be 3-hole punched to put in a binder, hung on the wall, or slid into a folder!!

This product would best fit with 3rd-6th graders, but would be GREAT for a 7-8 grade remediation reading class or special ed! Would also be a great option for differentiation if you have just a few students in your class that are having a difficult time with their grade level text that you already use.
