This is a directed reading meant to be used with the Life on an Ocean Planet textbook.
As your students read, they have to answer short answer style questions using complete sentences. We all have students who struggle with reading, and this assignment helps struggling readers understand water. And, every teacher knows waters unique properties is something kids struggle with. I use this in my classroom and it seems to be effective. I'm not a huge fan of the textbook though.
To accommodate for students varied reading abilities I've created two versions: "A" version for the advanced readers, and a "B" version for lower level readers. Both versions have keys.
I hope you find this resource useful!
