Included are 7 differentiated reading activities that connect reading to writing with post-reading writing activities. The differentiation provides accessibility for a variety of students. Each topic includes three leveled readings at lexile levels (basic, on grade level, advanced) appropriate for grades 3-5, and three leveled activities to match the readings. Each reading on a topic contains the same information, but the language varies slightly to achieve easier or more difficult readability.
Each page is marked with the Common Core (CCSS) standard it satisfies, and the download includes three separate interactive close reading files for the three different levels mentioned above. These readings are also aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Standard 4-ESS3- Earth and Human Activity.
