Product Description
This is the literature study I did in my middle school science classroom for my low readers. It could also be done in a 3rd to 5th grade class as well. It is on a chapter book called "The Missing 'Gator of Gumbo Limbo" by Jean Craighead George and is known as an "ecomystery", which applies for any unit on ecology, the environment, or the everglades. It is around a 4th grade reading level and is 9 chapters (143 pages). The document I created gives guiding questions for each chapter and my students wrote their responses in a journal as they read. This document also includes pictures of the some of the specific wildlife that is mentioned in each chapter, to help give students a visual of what is happening. My students really loved reading a science mystery in my science class and were very engaged. I got a classroom set of these books through a grant and they sell for about $5.99 new.

This is a GREAT way to get COMMON CORE ELA into your science classroom! My principal LOVED that I was taking a couple of weeks in the year to have students read something other than the science text. The kids liked to journal and this was a great project towards the end of the year when our state standardized tests are over.
