This activity includes three reading passages - one for rocks, one for minerals, and one for fossils. The one page passages have been recreated as a text side-by-side with questions. The questions are aligned with the text side-by-side so students can locate answers/ information quickly. There are also 24 task cards. The typical multiple choice format where students select A, B, C or D is not used. Instead, the task cards present answer choices as either this or that.... as either ______ or ______. Aligned with Georgia Performance Standards in science.
