Product Description

Snowflake Bentley Activities Close Reading

If your students love the book, "Snowflake Bentley" by Jacqueline Briggs Martin , they will love these close reading activities that are specifically built to compliment this amazing biography! It was designed to be used as a close reading routine, each day building on the previous day’s reading and at the end, students work to respond and create based on the text. Although it was designed this way, the unit does not have to be used this way in your classroom.
