This is a BUNDLE of my paired texts and reading activities. For each famous landform, there are two printable texts: a myth and a factual piece, with worksheets to teach reading strategies and comprehension skills for Elementary students.
These are paired texts, meaning the passages share the same topic, the Yellowstone River, Mt Fuji and the Three Sisters rock formation, however one passage is fictional and the second is non-fiction or informational.
The fictional passages are retold myths, legends and stories from the Shoshone, ancient Japanese and Australian Aboriginal cultures.
The worksheets encourage students to think and dig deeply into the texts and meaning with tasks on:
* answering questions
* author's purpose
* cause and effect
* fact and opnion
* compare and contrast
* connections (/I know... and what I want to know now)
* writing tasks
* conversation and letters between characters
* characters personality traits
* art, craft design tasks
I've supported the factual text with 5 QR codes (SafeShare) with footage of scenery, information on Grizzly Bears and Cutthroat Trout, tongue-in-cheek don't visit the park)
