A graphic organizer for students to organize information on a type of ants. I created this to go along with the common core standard in CA: w.2.2: Informative/explanatory writing. Students can use this to assist them in writing about a type of ant.
A list of tasks students can do when they are finished early. I have them keep it in their folders in a sheet protector. They include items such as task cards, bucket fillers, writing sticks, and challenge packet.
