Reading/Writing Strategy Activity
Students read article from TIMEkids news article. http://www.timeforkids.com/news/elephant-alert/86631 OR http://www.timeforkids.com/news/article-price-ivory/98961 (This was the article I used for this reading strategy)
They can annotate the article and then use the graphic organizer selecting the most important point (MVP/mama elephant) and three very important points (VIPs/baby elephants).
Can easily be printed out and ready to go for the kids! Depending on the article level, it can be used with a variety of reading levels.
