NEXT GENERATION Science Standards:
Integrate reading into your science curriculum with the easy to use FOCUS close read format. Students will read to understand that all animals inherit traits from their parents, but behaviors may be inherited or learned. Through the process, they will complete high levels of thinking through activities while engaging in the text multiple times.
*10 Vocabulary Posters
*Teacher Guide and Checklist- Provides guidance and documentation for student success.
*Rubrics- 2 FOCUS rubrics are provided to help you understand the purpose and your students progress.
*ThinkBox- After labeling and reading the text independently, students will complete a think box to organize their thoughts. Questions are text dependent and evidence must be cited from the text.
*Unwrapping the text- Students will analyze the text and its text features to complete an engaging activity. By searching and citing the text, students will become more familiar with the content.
*Show- Students may choose from 4 task cards (or you can choose one in advance) to complete a higher level activity to show comprehension of the material.
*Stations- (3) to provide additional review of the content
