Product Description
Here is a reading lesson that can effectively be used in either reading class or science class. It promotes the skills of gaining knowledge, literal comprehension, and making contrasts and comparisons. Although, it’s basically a worksheet, it includes a cute fictional story about two trees talking to one another. The orange tree thinks the oak tree should be proud, because it is useful. Then the orange tree tells the oak how it is useful. In response, the oak tree describes ways that the orange tree is special. By story’s end, the orange tree is feeling happy and useful, too. Following the story, there are five literal reading comprehension questions. Two are multiple choice, in which students, when given facts, decide whether it’s a trait of the orange tree or of the oak tree. There are also three questions that require brief write-in answers based on the information in the story. On this first page there is also a picture of each tree to help students know the appearance of each type of tree.The second page is a labeled Venn diagram that can be printed off. With it, students compare and contrast traits of orange trees and oak trees. . They can also use story facts and their own background knowledge to provide answers for the Venn. You can project the Venn and complete it as a whole group shared learning experience. You might prefer printing off a few copies and letting students complete the Venn diagram in cooperative groups. And there is also the option of letting each student complete their own individual Venn diagram. Overall, the product will provide a fun, relevant learning experience that encourages the development of thinking skills. The third page is the answer key, which includes possible responses to be used for the Venn diagram. (*On the thumbnail preview, the spacing between Choice A and B is inconsistent, trust me it's fine on the actual product you will download. I don't know why that happens on the TPT Generated images.)
