Looking for a way to increase your students’ engagement with nonfiction? Ready to supplement testing and data-collecting with an activity your students will enjoy? Want your students to have plenty of accountable independent reading practice?
Nonfiction Investigation Lapbooks are an enjoyable, interactive way for readers to engage with nonfiction reader texts. Your students can read these nonfiction texts to themselves cover-to-cover. No more browsing only for the pictures! Hold your students accountable for their independent reading. In this interactive lapbook activity, students are required to cite page numbers from the text to support all answers. The focus is on evidence finding - practicing the skills of locating and citing evidence, not simply guessing at answers.
This activity is aimed specifically for readers in 3rd & 4th grades (RL 3-40, iL 1-5.) Readers in grades 1-5 will enjoy the opportunity to learn from these engaging nonfiction texts.
Great for small groups, literacy centers, or home activity.
Elementary students are curious and eager to learn about the world around them. Given the opportunity to read nonfiction texts written especially for them, elementary readers are delighted to spend time reading! Nonfiction readers provide your students with the opportunity to practice their reading skills, while building background knowledge!
