What this resource is all about

The purpose of this resource is to provide ready-to-go non-fiction texts and engaging higher order thinking questions.

This resource is jam-packed with exciting, thought-provoking activities to grab your students’ attention AND hold it. The activities begin at the lower levels of Blooms Taxonomy (Remember, Understand, Apply) and move through to the higher levels (Analyse, Evaluate, Create).
