These nature-themed graphic organizers are perfect for practicing text features. They are Common Core aligned with an emphasis on finding details based on the 5Ws (who, what, where, when, why). The index practice sheets use animal and biography books which can usually be found in abundance in the school or local library.
I’ve used them during whole group instruction, guided reading, and independent reading times, including my Reader’s Workshop time. You may need to gather an armload of appropriate books from your own closet or the library but other than that, these are no-prep. Just print off and go!
