PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is an engaging game for the non-fiction version of a "picture walk". My first graders are reading polar animal books in guided reading this week and I want to focus on prereading strategies for informational texts.

I created this game for them to play in pairs. You can choose how you want to implement, but I plan on giving them penguin erasers (topic of our text) as game pieces and a penny. Flip the coin to move once for heads and twice for tails. You can play with a die, but moving 1 or 2 spaces provides more opportunties for practice.

When a student lands on a square, they hunt for the text feature in their book - both reading/identifying it and explaining it's purpose on the page. When a student lands on a snowflake square, they say something they already know about the topic or a question they may have about the topic. This activates prior knowledge and sets another purpose for reading!

A great introductory activity to your non-fiction lessons.
