This is a nonfiction packet contain five different articles all having a common theme of Minerals! It mentions What Are Minerals?, Properties of Minerals, Crystals, Metals, Gemstones
These texts have been written on a fourth grade reading level and make students feel successful when reading about new scientific concepts. Each article has a multiple choice comprehension question, vocabulary block, a space to illustrate the new concept, and a once sentence summary statement. This packet also contains a one page written response questionnaire with paired text questions.
These short nonfiction texts work great for centers, morning work, homework, whole group, or small group work. I've also had great success with gluing these pages into our Science journals. Students then have the chance to go back and reread information.
The five texts included are:
What Are Minerals?
Properties of Minerals
