Seven pages of expository comprehension, reading and writing activities to go with a unit on rainforests. The activities include compare/contrast, revision sentences, drawing a diagram, word referents, fact gathering, and scavenger hunt (comprehension) questions. I like to use this in conjunction with "The Greak Kapok Tree". We compare the fiction and nonfiction pieces and use this packet to launch into an expository writing piece on rainforests.
These activities can be done whole group, small group, cooperative groups, partners, or individually.
