Are you ready for summer? Take your students to the ocean with you as you read about manatees!
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 "Manatees: Cows of the Sea" differentiated close reading passages and comprehension questions. In this product, there are three nonfiction-reading passages based on manatees, their diet, and their habitats. 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 each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. I've leveled each passage with its Lexile reading level. There are also twelve higher-order thinking comprehension questions that correspond with the passages that includes an answer key. Lexile levels included: 870,730, and 630.
