There are two printable paired texts: a myth and a factual piece, with worksheets and reading activities to teach reading strategies and comprehension skills for Elementary students. These are paired texts, meaning the passages share the same topic, the Yellowstone River, however one passage is fictional, from the Shoshone people and the second is non-fiction or informational.
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
* 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)
