PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you ready for summer? Take your students to the ocean with you as you read about these amazing ocean creatures! Your students won't be "CRABBY" as they practice an reading informational text about whales, sharks, horseshoe crabs, bottlenose dolphins, sea turtles, or manatees. This bundle includes six different ocean creatures and three differentiated versions of each creature! The questions that go along with each passage require students to look back and find that important text evidence for fill in the blank responses.

Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate social studies and science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. I've leveled each passage with its Lexile reading level.

HORSESHOE CRABS Lexile levels included: 810,610, and 560
WHALES Lexile levels included: 630,710, and 850
SHARKS Lexile levels included: 880, 680, and 580
SEA TURTLES Lexile levels included: 880, 680, and 580
BOTTLENOSE DOLPHINS Lexiles: 700, 620, and 560
MANATEES Lexile levels included: 870,730, and 630
