This is a set of text dependent questions that correlate with the McGraw Hill Wonders Reading Series, "Winter's Tail". I have created a set of questions that go along with the passage on "Building a Green Town" found on workbook pages 133 and 134. The questions I have created require students to look back in the text to find their answers. Students are asked to find word meanings based upon context clues, identify a fact and opinion, state the author's purpose, and write the main idea of the passage. I encourage my students to highlight the portion of the passage that helps them find their answer. I believe this is a great way to prepare students to take standardized tests as well as form a habit of "proving" their answers by finding text support. This is a skill that students MUST conquer in order to be successful with the new common core standards.
I have several other activities that correlate with this story. Please take a look and see if anything interests you. Thank you for considering my products. Please leave feedback if you enjoy using them in your classroom and to receive your TPT credits. THANKS!
