This easy to assign non-fiction book unit is designed to work for any nonfiction book -- giving you a great tool to keep in your teaching chest. You can use individual pages as separate graphic organizers or give students the whole package to work through. It takes them from selecting a non-fiction book, to assessing it and finally creating a project to share with other students.
It works on paper or for distance learning, to be shared via Google Classroom, Easel or Kami.
Take a look at the preview to get a full idea of what you get.
Day 1 is about selecting the book.
The Reading Log covers a single week. It is supposed to be very easy to fill in so it does not feel like a chore after reading. Use the duplicate page for a second week.
The Questions Pages are designed more as a menu - you might want to encourage students to answer say 10 questions rather than all of them.
The Assess section comes after reading and gives students a chance to process what they have read and design a new book cover for it.
The Project page also includes a menu of suggestions. You might want to tell the students to select any five or six for their project. They can create a project on paper or on a computer.
