Your students will be captivated with sea turtles with the help of this resource! The vivid photographs and fascinating facts will have your students BEGGING for more!
This sea turtle packet covers the following topics:

- Where Do Sea Turtles Live?
- What Do Sea Turtles Eat?
- Sea Turtle Migration
- Sea Turtle Hatchlings

In this 105 page packet, I've included:
Part 1: Posters to hang in your classroom and to use while introducing sea turtles (these real life photographs will capture the attention of even your most reluctant students!).
Part 2: Hook 'Em: These article pages were designed as a way for you to "hook" your students at the beginning of your sea turtle unit. You can display the article pages on your document camera as a whole group or print and display during small group instruction.
Part 3: Differentiated All About Sea Turtle Mini-Books - These are differentiated mini-books that can be used during small group instruction. There are three versions. Each version is slightly easier than the last. I wanted to give you options because I know that many of our students come in reading at different ability levels. It is up to you to pick and choose which articles you use with your groups. You can either print in color and laminate or print them in grayscale. Text-Dependent Response sheets follow!
Part 4: Close Reading Passage: The article, "Keep Them Safe!" is PERFECT to help you and your students get into the groove of closely reading a text that requires multiple reads and answering text-dependent questions. These can either be done together in small group OR with guided support. Questions about each close reading passage are included.
Part 4: Graphic Organizers, True/False Sorting Activity, Vocabulary Books, and Independent Practice Sheets
In addition, I've also included links to some fabulous firefly web resources and books!
