Super Storms Close Reading Activities about Weather

Looking to incorporate weather science curriculum and reading together? This close reading unit is the perfect addition to your weather unit or spring activities! This 5-day unit is designed around the book, ”Super Storms” written by Seymour Simon.

It is designed to be used as a close reading routine, each day building on the previous day’s reading and at the end, students work to respond and create based on the text. Although it was designed this way, the unit does not have to be used this way in your classroom.
