This Turkey - Common Core Non-Fiction Unit was created as a Common Core aligned non-fiction unit. There are activities for reading and understanding non-fiction text, informational writing based on understanding and comparing non-fiction text. We created it to help us meet the Common Core standards while still using a fun turkey theme. There are many “parts” included in this unit (far more than we can show in the thumbnails). Please see the list below and our preview for more information!
