Product Description
This is the second book in a series of Informational Text with a focus on problems we face in the world. This series addresses the Next Generation Science Standards.

K-2-ETS1-1. Ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem but can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

Your students will interact with text as they are learning about the problem of the Earth's climate increase (Global Warming) and how we can become part of the solution. This download includes 11 student pages and offers opportunities to:

• learn facts
• learn about a problem we face in the world
* understand key vocabulary {climate, greenhouse gasses, global warming ect.} (CC.RI.2.4)
* ask and answer questions (CC.RI.2.1)
* determine main idea (CC.RI.2.2)
* focus on author's purpose (CC.RI.2.3)
* determine how images and text features contribute to the understanding of text (CC.RI.2.5 and CC.RI.2.7)

Parts of the book have the language of an informational text {factual and how-to} and other parts are opinionated and appeal to the emotions {persuasive}. If you're currently working on an informational or persuasive reading/writing unit of study, this little text is a nice connection. Idea: Students can research additional information and add "Wow Facts" or "Did You Know" bubbles to certain pages in the book.

Directions: Cut the pages in half, assemble, and staple. Allow some time for coloring and illustrating. Use during shared reading or small group reading instruction. Teach the key vocabulary and let the children write definitions in their own words and/or draw pictures to show the meaning of the words. Also, allow students to ask and answer questions about the text. Reread individually or in pairs.
