An exciting and engaging mini unit to get your students excited about nonfiction! In this mini unit, students will learn about key terms such as schema, prediction, and wondering. The students will work in small groups to complete a comprehensive research project on a specific woodland animal. This is a great mini unit to use after a Jan Brett author study as the animals in her books are woodland animals that are familiar to most young students. This unit pairs well with the Primary Comprehension Toolkit - Book 2 - by Harvey & Goudvis.
