PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These reading activities give students the opportunity to think about the informational text that they are reading. Students use digital devices to complete the activities. Important Common Core skills such as finding textual evidence and determining the central idea are included. No copies or handouts are needed.

Products Details
This informational text is broken down into small sections. Each section is followed by an activity that enables students to process what they just read before moving on to the next section. Some of the reading activities can be done in pairs. As students move through the assignment, they will gather evidence to answer the essential question.

This resource can be used in place of the textbook or as a supplemental resource. It is compatible with most textbooks. It can also be assigned for homework to students who have access to iPads and laptops at home.

Students with access to iPads or laptops will use notebook paper along with their devices to read and complete the activities. This resource also works for students in a classroom with a large projection screen (69"Hx71"W or larger) and an LCD projector.
