This is a 15 slide powerpoint to use while teaching "The World's Smallest Island Nation" from 5th Grade Reading Street Unit 1 Week 3.
Our district uses the Sleuth Story as a whole group introduction to each week's story. We use it as a CLOSE READ. Each slide contains photos/maps of the island of Nauru which is the topic of the Sleuth Story article.
The powerpoint is meant for a teacher to use during instruction. Our team calls this time "sticky note" sleuth stories because we have groups of students use "sticky post-it notes" to locate evidence in the text during the CLOSE READ.
Includes the following tasks:
*Reading and rereading task
*Text-dependent question task
