This is a paired text packet with a video link. It includes a two page nonfiction text passage about thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. There is also a two page 'camp out' story that also includes references to thunderstorms, tornadoes, and hurricanes. The video link is to a' teachertube' video which address' severe storms, such as thunder storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, ice storms, and blizzards. There are 18 critical thinking questions which are aligned to SBAC testing questions. I have also included a compare and contrast diagram where all three sources of information can be included. 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.
