This is a paired text packet with a video link. It includes a two page nonfiction text passage about gorillas. There is also a two page 'At the Zoo' story that also includes references to gorillas. The video link is to a' youtube' video which address' mountain gorillas in Africa. There are 15 critical thinking questions which are aligned to SBAC testing questions. I have also included a compare and contrast diagram where the fiction and nonfiction sources of information can be compared and contrasted. This is a great resource for test prep, DOK three and four tasks, and higher level thinking. Students are asked to refer to the text and/or video to provide evidence of their answers. Many questions have more than one correct answers and some questions are open-ended and require an essay type answer. This packet is great for preparing students for difficult standardized tests.
