I created this activity as a mini-project that my students could complete in partners, using the book Surviving Hurricanes by Elizabath Raum. The book is full of nonfiction text features, as well as interesting first and second hand accounts. There are many skills you can practice using this book as a guide!
All you need to do is make copies and assign partners!
The included directions sheet lists every thing expected of the students. I gave each set of partners one copy so they could follow it as a guide, ensuring that they completed every aspect of the activity completely.
The project sheet is where students complete the actual activity.
Finally, there is a checklist/ rubric included with a mark for each required task. I used this to assign a grade, but you could use it as a basis for feedback or for students to check themselves or each other.
