*This resource now comes with FULL-PAGE TEXT and FULL PAGE QUESTION/ANSWER format, in addition to interactive flip flaps for notebooks!
This set is complete with a range of ten informational texts and interactive flip flaps for notebooks, as well as full-sheet text and full-sheet questions for those of you limited on time with interactive notes. I have also included possible responses for every part of this set to help guide your instruction. In this set, you will also find posters to hang in your classroom and an introduction to the standard complete with student notes. These activities can be used for classwork, notes, centers, homework, and assessments. In my class, we first read the article thoroughly (you might opt to do this individually, in pairs, small groups, centers, or whole class.). Next, we decide based on the clues and information in the text what type of article we have just read (historical, scientific, or technical). After that we discuss the article together looking for relationships, interactions and/or connections that were important to understanding the text. Lastly, I model strategies on how to properly answer the comprehension questions using evidence and inference of the informational text. Of course this is just an idea, feel free to go in any order that works best for your students. ☺ I have found that the more exposure and practice the students get, the easier this skill becomes.
Explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in a historical, scientific, or technical text based on specific information in the text.

Although this bundle of activities is meant to teach the 5th grade standard RI5.3, it has many similarities to my RI4.3 bundle. If you have already purchased my RI4.3 set, please note that the articles are the same, but many questions have been altered/changed to reflect the differences in standards. :)
This set is also part of my 5th Grade Reading Informational Text Bundle Set, which can be found by clicking here.
