Integrating and answering questions from two texts on the same topic can be difficult for students. Easily teach reading and comparing paired texts with this Fossil Unit.

In this unit, students will learn about the study of fossils, the stories they tell us about the history of the world, and how paleontologists have a hard, but interesting job of piecing together the past with fossils they discover.

Students will:

  • analyze 2 informational texts with a similar theme and topic
  • find common details about each topic
  • determine which details in both texts are important
