These research enrichment activities are designed to go along with a Close Read that my kiddos will do on "Salamander Crossing." This article is part of a great product by Emily Kissner in her Problem and Solution Texts for Teaching Text Structure. She includes differentiated texts and several activities for each. She has a product of these for EACH text structure and more skills, too. This particular article also lends itself well to cause and effect, so I combined the two.
