Product Description
Properties of Flight: A Nonfiction Close Reading Activity is a nonfiction description of the four main forces required for flight: lift, drag, thrust, and gravity. An excerpt written specifically by an engineer for students to practice text analysis, this passage may be considered more difficult for some students. It is designed in such a way that students should be able to analyze the text and respond to testing-style questions without having prior knowledge of these scientific concepts.

Designed for 5th and 6th grade students, this close reading activity has students focus first on reading the technical excerpt multiple times while searching for unknown words, new concepts, and key points. Then, the students answer questions ranging from Knowledge to Synthesis on Bloom's Taxonomy.

The nature of close reading, as well as the passage and questions lend this activity to Standardized Test Practice as well. The questions and activities are designed to help students practice analyzing a difficult, technical nonfiction text and respond to a variety of questions in preparation for similar techniques used in PARCC testing. Close reading is a strategy that is encouraged through Common Core, best completed with short passages such as the one provided here.
