Synthesis made SNAZZY and SIMPLE!
This 24 page packet will help teach your students that they are synthesizing when their thinking grows and changes. It takes an abstract concept and simplifies it through the imagery of nesting dolls. You can use this packet with or without nesting dolls, but I highly recommend them! This idea was inspired by Tanny McGregor's book, Comprehension Connections! It includes lesson plans matched up to a Common Core standard, exit slips, posters, think aloud nesting cards, and nesting paper dolls to help your students grasp the concept... literally! For a sneak peek, check out the preview file!
