Here's a perfect winter reading passage for middle school! (It's part of my Winter Nonfiction Articles and Graphic Organizers set, and it's now digital for Google Classroom!)
Practice identifying main ideas and sequence of events using a high-interest, winter-themed informational reading passage and nonfiction graphic organizer (sequence chart). There is also an open-ended opinion response question at the end, inviting students to evaluate the relative importance of events in the article.
This resource now includes an interactive digital version for use in Google Classroom!
This nonfiction reading activity is a great way to reinforce sequence/chronological order text structure. It works well as a whole-class lesson on an interactive whiteboard, a group activity, or a homework assignment. The Google version is ideal for a virtual lesson or distance learning independent work!
I hope your students enjoy learning the fascinating history of ice skating (and practicing chronological order text structure while they're at it)!
An answer key is included.
