Product Description
States of Matter Unit - Close Reading ~ Text Dependent Questions

We have developed this huge 131 page, complete unit on Matter, including informational text passages for CLOSE READING, research report, text dependent questions, and essential questions that contains everything needed to teach a rigorous unit on matter. This bundle is also great if using centers, or doing small group instruction.

Not familiar with CLOSE reading? It’s okay, we have instructions and anchor charts to help you incorporate it into your teaching. There are text dependent questions aligned with each passage, a set of vocabulary cards with definitions to accompany the passages, essential questions for writing activities, our best-selling research report on Matter, and much, much, more. A variety of other graphic organizers and activities are included.

We do encourage you to supplement with any other books, videos, and websites that you already use; they will blend nicely with our CLOSE reading passages. You can use this unit in its entirety, or “pick and choose” the components to meet the needs of your students.

This unit contains the following elements:

• CLOSE reading nonfiction passages with illustrations:
1. Passage One - What is Matter
2. Passage Two - What Makes Up Matter
3. Passage Three - States of Matter
• Vocabulary cards with definitions for CLOSE reading passages
• CLOSE Reading Instructions PowerPoint (or handout) explaining the steps of CLOSE Reading
• Anchor Charts for student annotation and Discussion Topics for CLOSE Reading
• “Text Dependent Questions”, to be used after all passages are read; this is intended as a summative assessment, or practice in citing textual evidence and giving examples from the reading of nonfiction text
• Common Core Essential questions (to be used after all passages are read, can be used as a summative assessment or a performance task)
• Matter Research Report - template to be used to write a complete report about matter. This report format can also be used as a performance task. This is a separate product included for FREE!
• Cognitive Content Dictionary (to be made into a “book” for student vocabulary words, definitions, and pictures
• KWL Chart ( you can use this at the beginning of the unit to ascertain what they may already know about the California Missions)
• Venn Diagram to compare and contrast similarities and differences.
• A Tree Map Graphic Organizer ( a grammar component for students to analyze the words in the passages and their parts of speech)
