These informational reading selections about winter include tons of interesting facts. I created each of these original themed selections (8 in all) based on the specific Common Core needs of 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. Each selection is two pages long and includes a two-page worksheet with complete answer key.

Sample: Frogs in Winter

Frogs are truly amazing animals. They live all over the world in places as cold as the arctic north and as hot as the Death Valley desert. Frogs are cold-blooded animals, meaning their body temperature changes with the temperature in their environment. So how can a frog live through a freezing cold winter?

Some frogs hibernate underwater. Frogs are not like turtles that burrow in mud at the bottom of a pond. Frogs could not survive if they did that. A turtle can slow its body systems down so it can survive on oxygen in the mud. Frogs must be in water that has plenty of oxygen.

What happens if a pond becomes frozen solid? What if a frog in a log becomes a frozen frogsicle?

Standards-based reading fun

Common Core State Standards include an updated focus on reading informational texts. These selections and worksheets fit perfectly with the standards below. I have included are multiple-choice, short answer and some extended response items.

This reading packet includes selections on:

- Snowflakes
