Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these differentiated reading passages and comprehension questions. In this product, there are four informational reading passages based on the Georgia third grade science standards! If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. There are also rigorous comprehension questions included for each. These are written with third grade in mind, but could easily be adapted due to the different levels the text is written at. Also, please note that while these topics cover Georgia's standards, they would be great informational reading practice in general!

$Why should I purchase this passage set?$

• Textbooks aren't what they used to be...if we have them at all. Often textbooks are written well above grade level and simply aren't interested. I use my love of history to make passages engaging and informative for all levels of readers!

Teach across the curriculum! Show your administration how you integrate and differentiate by implementing during guided reading groups, center time, or in a regular social studies block

Perfect for last minute print & go sub plans, morning work, & homework

• In my own classroom, they are often used at the end of a unit for review, as study guides, and even test prep

Have students with accommodations? Instantly assess them at THEIR LEVEL while meeting IEP goals!

How Does This Resource Make Me A Better Teacher?

Your time is precious & the standards are plentiful
By integrating across content whenever possible, you save time and your students see connections across the curriculum!

Differentiated Instruction is no longer optional-it is a must! There is no one-size-fits-all classroom. These passages are an easy way to check that off of your never-ending teacher to-do list!

Reach your entire class with the same quality content. Each student in your class deserves a fair chance at the content. Let their passion for science and social studies thrive, regardless of their reading ability. While passages appear very similar, I can assure you hours of researching and writing have occurred on my behalf to ensure that each level is appropriate for your learners.
