This unit contains 14 interesting activity pages for a nonfiction study of umbrellas. It is written at a second grade vocabulary level. The unit includes reading, comprehension, close read practice, and vocabulary games. Students can practice the sentences and improve their reading fluency with a roll and read activity. After completing their study of the facts about umbrellas, students will enjoy being challenged to write a letter to someone, retelling some of these facts. Finally, students are asked to write a fiction story about three animals with umbrellas in the rain. This contrast of fiction to nonfiction allows the learner to connect these two varying concepts. This mini-unit will delight students, while assuring the teacher that basic target skills are being covered.
