This set is complete with a range of twenty informational texts (two on each topic) and interactive flip flaps for notebooks. I have also included possible responses for every part of this set to help guide your instruction. In this set, you will also find color posters to hang in your classroom on the five text structure types, an introduction to the standard complete with student notes, and an in depth assessment based on the standard. These activities can be used for classwork, notes, centers, homework, and assessments.
Compare and contrast the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in two or more texts.

*Although this bundle of activities is meant to teach the 5th grade standard RI5.5, it has some similarities to my RI4.5 bundle. If you have already purchased my RI4.5 set, please note that the first text is similar, but the second text is new and different to align with the 5th grade standard. Also, the questions have been 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.
