Product Description
These Safari themed, no prep, short passages includes 10 nonfiction and 10 fictional passages for second and third grade students. They're an excellent way to practicing close reading skills! The passages are engaging and will motivate students to read. Each passage has 3-4 text-based questions and an open response, text dependent question!

In the nonfiction and fictional passages the students will read all about going on safari through Africa's savannas (grasslands) and the animals you'd see there!

Topics Included:
Using a Compass
★ Africa's Grasslands
★ Predator and Prey
★ Lion's Pride
★ Deadliest Animal
★ What is a Safari
★ Giraffes are Unique
★ The Great Migration

The Great Migration also includes a PowerPoint with 6 slides with amazing images showing what the Great Migration is! Reading about created so much interest with my students that I included the PowerPoint to further explain the topic!

Comprehension skills covered:
✔ Noting Details
✔ Inferencing
✔ Vocabulary Comprehension
✔ Character Traits
✔ Plot
✔ Cause and Effect
✔ Poem Analysis
✔ Open-Ended Questions
✔ On-the-Surface Questions

Use these passages for close reading, guided reading, shared reading, assessments, homework or centers. Students can work with partners or independently.

I've also included a cover page if you'd like to staple them and make a packet out of them! Students can work at their own pace in completing the reading.

The passages are excellent for second graders but can also be used for first grade students that are ready for rigorous text.
