This is a nonfiction reading activity that goes along with a national geographic article on lightning striking, called In The Strike Zone. It is from the March 2012 pioneer edition. If you would like the article to go with this activity I will send it to you, if you comment with your email. It will be a PDF so that it can still be opened on the computer or ipad if you do not want to print it!
Students read the article and complete before, during, and after reading questions that tie in directly to the common core. This could be used in a science lesson on weather as well.
