Engage students in Reading through Science! Research through informational text. Students will “research” storms including, Thunderstorms, Winter Storms, Blizzards, Tornados, and Hurricanes.
Students will read short informational text to learn facts about different types of storms. Packet also includes reading for topic and details and writing about storms. Unit ends with an assessment of the five different storms we studied.
I used this to enrich my higher readers with Journey’s “The Storm” Unit 1, Lesson 2. This unit can also stand alone. We also found pictures on the internet for each storm while we read about them individually.
