This set includes 7 weather related nonfiction passages:

What is Weather?

Blowing in the Wind

The Water Cycle


Weather Patterns


Weather Instruments

Each passage has 2 sets of questions: one for basic understanding and a second for more inference and explanation. Both are short answer.

Each topic also has at least one interactive notebook foldable activity that can be done independently or whole group! Plus links to free online video and book suggestions! (clickable links added 10/2/15)

With nonfiction reading becoming more and more important and text complexity being pushed, I wrote these passages to use with my 2nd grade class. They range from 700L-850L so we worked through them together. I would recommend this for any grade to really have some great discussion! Each passage is labeled with the lexile level to assist you when planning!

These are meant to be read more than once!

Please see the preview for a look at the whole unit!
