These are activities based on the wonderful book "A Whale Is Not A Fish and Other Animal Mix-ups." Your 3rd and 4th graders will practice reading for information, use a graphic organizer to record that information, write compare and contrast paragraphs, and playing a "What Am I?" game. The activities can be done with partners or individually. They are aligned to Common Core Standards RL.3.1, RL.3.7, RL.3.9, RI.3.7. I hope you enjoy them!
