This product contains close reading passages and questions about six animals you might see on an African safari. These include giraffes, lions, ostriches, cheetahs, elephants, and hippos!
The following is included:
- Close reading passages
- "Got Thoughts?" activities for first read
- "Got Words?" activities to look at vocabulary words
- "Got Proof?" activities to use text-based evidence
I have included both grayscale and color versions of the passage and activities for print and projection/interactive whiteboard purposes.
To preview the format of these passages and activities, please download my freebie about my favorite animal...THE MOOSE!:

A big push within the Common Core ELA standards is using text-based evidence to draw conclusions, make inferences, etc. Close reading products become important tools to help our students "get the most bang for their buck" out of what they read.
