Do you need some engaging and low prep reading centers for multiple accounts of the same topic/multiple perspectives on the same topic? This resource includes 6 reading centers that your students will love!
Click here to see more Engaging Reading Centers for Upper Elementary.
Included are six centers, each consisting of two paired texts and a game board with text-dependent questions.
Each text explores the possibility of the existence of a myth or legend.
The topics included are:
Loch Ness Monster
There are a few options for using these centers:
Option 1: Print the passages to the students and give them to them at the beginning of the week. Have the students read the passages prior to going to the center. Then when they come to the center, they are ready to play the “game” and answer the questions. The passages could even be read whole group or sent home for homework.
Option 2: This option works well if the students will have a chance to go to the center 3 times a week. The first 1 or 2 days the students will read the passages and discuss. Then on the 2nd or 3rd day, the students will “play” the game.
I have also included several options for how the students will play the game for you to choose from as well as options for assessing the students. You can check these out as well as a closer look at the centers in the preview file.
