Nonfiction Article of the Week Club, Article #5-5: Gaming Addiction (+Fortnite™!)
This is the fifth in a set of 25 informational text articles + activity packs designed to teach ALL of the reading informational text standards for 5th grade in a fun, rigorous, and easy to implement solution! The focus in this resource is a spiral review of RI.5.2 and RI.5.3: writing an objective summary, development of central ideas, and teaching students to explain and analyze the relationships between ideas and concepts in a nonfiction text. Your students will love reading about the hot topic of gaming disorder, including the sensationally popular game, Fortnite™.
Each article + activity pack includes these components:
-original article written at the 5th grade level
-modified version of each article
-professional audio recording of each article and modified article
-editable version of all activities and assessments
-digital Google Slides version of all articles and activities
-self-grading Google Forms assessments (3 per article)
Students will also complete activities for text evidence, integrating information, literal comprehension, and take a comprehensive assessment. Please view the activity breakdown in the preview file for a comprehensive look of what's included here.
In addition, because this is a review pack, Activity 5 is longer than usual and the test is 12 questions instead of 8 (10 multiple choice and 2 open ended/discussion).
