This is the fourth of a series of nonfiction science articles I am currently writing. This resource was designed for use in an upper elementary classroom, mainly grades 4-6. The new science standards, as well as language arts common core, require a large amount of science nonfiction reading. Meet the standards with an article your students can understand. Questions and answer key provided. This is a print and go lesson. Great to use with a sub!
This is Article 4: Igneous Rocks. This article explains how it is possible for igneous rocks to be different colors. If all magma in the mantle is the same, how is it possible for igneous rocks to be different colors? This article explains how and why. Interactive question included. Answer key included.
Follow me for updates when I post the rest! Once completed, a bundle will be compiled.
