Help your students dig deeper into nonfiction reading with the Winter Games themed close reading passages and questions.
In this product, there are ten nonfiction reading passages based on ten Winter Games themed passages. Since we all have students reading on many different reading levels, I've written each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation a little easier for you. I've leveled each passage with its lexile reading level and have included a reading level correlation chart that compares Fountas and Pinnell, DRA, and lexile levels.
There are also three sets of questions for each set of passages. The first set of questions requires students to cite evidence in the text, and the second set of questions require students to analyze the text structure and word choice of the passage. The third set of questions have students respond to a question that promotes high order thinking.
These activities will be a perfect fit with any Olympic Games unit! These can be completed as a whole group, guided reading group, or even homework. All questions are Common Core aligned.
