This activity is designed to be used during a reading lesson to help your students sequence events in what they are reading, and then decide upon the level of importance of each event. They draw a balloon in the graph area to note importance. The higher they draw the balloon, the more important the event. I use this in my guided reading groups and it sparks TONS of conversation among my students! This is the most powerful way I've taught sequencing events, and I love that it gets higher level thinking and discussion happening naturally with students!
