Common Core standards in reading emphasize the importance of informational text reading. This Nonfiction Text Features Book is a 7 page document that becomes a 12 page student booklet when copied and folded.
Detailed Teacher Notes are included, which describe the process of introducing text features, allowing students to go on a scavenger hunt in their science books and in any nonfiction books you have in your classroom library to find the text feature of the day. Then students complete the appropriate text feature page.
My students always enjoy this unit. They love to add their own art to the cover, featuring nonfiction themes like animals, sports, places and they love to play the "I Spy" a nonfiction text feature scavenger hunt game.
