Using Bloom’s Taxonomy is a great framework to use to teach your students higher order thinking skills. It has come to my attention through working with various ages of children that they do not have the language ability to answer this type of questioning accurately and effectively. My students struggle with questions at the application level and above. If the answers are taken directly from the text they may be able to find the correct answer. However, if the questions require deeper insight especially answering Why and How questions, my students struggle! I created this unit with them in mind. The stories are original and I hope of high interest to your students. I also used realistic photos that are fun and interesting! They will print out in black and white well too!
