PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PROOFREADING PRACTICE
Animal-Based Passages
PRINTABLES for Grades 4–6

Proofreading Practice: Animals
Proofreading has never been more FUN! Students help Detective Super Proofer find mistakes in high-interest, science-based passages about animals. Students not only sharpen their proofreading skills but learn facts covering animal adaptations, habitats, communication, characteristics, and more.

Topics of the cases (passages) include:

• Anteaters
• Armadillos
• Capybaras
• Elands
• Giraffes
• Hedgehogs
• Jaguars
• Koalas
• Llamas
• Porcupines
• Tapirs
• Yaks

Student detectives look for the following types of errors in the animal-based passages:

subject-verb agreement

• punctuation

• verb tenses

• capitalization

• spelling


This unit also includes:
• a Note to Student Detectives (complete step-by-step instructions)

• a Sample Lesson (to do together as a class before assigning individual or group work)

• an Answer Key for each passage

• a Cases Completed Sheet (to keep track of the cases solved)

• a Student Record Sheet (to keep track of the number of correct answers for each case)

• an Award Certificate for completion of the unit

Students enjoy reading about another subject while they are in English class doing the "English stuff." I bought three of these products and all have been well received. Makes my life much easier. Thank you.
