Teach about sharks with this complete and fun 54 pages long unit designed with bright colored pictures and big print for the young readers.
Students will engage in reading and answering comprehension questions about each topic they learn about sharks.
As they read and learn, they put together the parts of a 31 inch long paper shark.
This is a great activity to have the kids work in groups but also easy enough for the kids to work alone with little teacher guidance.
The reader is simple and each page is paired with detailed comprehension questions they can look back and answer on their own.
The unit also has an interactive notebook or lap book that goes along each topic.
You do not need to get any books or extra materials. Just print and hand out.
