2nd-4th Grade & Homeschool Common Core Aligned or Write your own Standards
130+ Pages w/ worksheets & answer keys
In this unit, you will find 15 original “Science Themed” passages with 5 activities per text. Text dependent questions are common core aligned. This unit is perfect to teach reading in the content area of science. Students must cite text evidence to answer each question. Passages are grouped as mini-units with borders corrugated so there isn’t any mixing up of pages. At the end of the unit I have included the passages without border—- this way you can implement Close Reading strategies as a whole or small group.
