  • StandardsNEW

Nonfiction text feature surgery has been seen all over social media, and now you can bring this engaging activity to your own classroom! Everything is included in this product to create your own “surgery experience” for your students. 

You can make it as simple or theatrical as you like!  If you need a print and go version, your students will only need a magazine, the patient files, scissors and glue. If you really want a memorable experience, provide surgical gloves and face masks for each of your students. You can even play a video of a heart rate monitor in the background!

In this product you will find:

•Welcome to Medical School- Interactive notes to introduce the non-fiction text features to your students. Includes Table of Contents, Bold Words, Glossary, Heading, Maps, Photographs, Illustrations, Captions, Diagram with Labels, Index and Graphs/Tables. 

•Text Feature Matching Cards- Use these as a matching center activity or a fun memory game.

•Surgery Day Checklist- Step by step directions for your students to follow during the surgery activity. 

•Patient Files- Students will analyze the symptoms of 10 patients to determine which text feature would help them. They will then find an example of that text feature in the magazine and glue it into the box. 

•Post-Op Report- An early finisher activity where students will identify the purpose of each text feature, and how it helps the reader.
