Why do leaves change colors?
Science and Literacy (Fall and Thanksgiving Freebie)
NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards)
Learn about how photosynthesis plays a role in the fall colors of leaves through a short reading passage (infomational text). Use context clues from the reading to define key science words.
Process the reading with the fun sequencing graphic organizers and writing with key words.
And for added fun, students can complete the Colorful Leaves Turkey Craftivity!
This is a fun Thanksgiving or Fall science set for any grade level!
Read with the class for younger readers. 2nd - 5th graders can read the included passage more independently. Go over the key words before reading to help younger kids read and comprehend better.
There are two levels of graphic organizers to help meet your students' needs.
Have fun and enjoy my holiday freebie!!
