- KWL Chart for activating prior knowledge
- “Fact File” for building background
- 8 Task Cards to read and answer questions
I recommend laminating them, as well as the answer sheet to make them longer lasting. You may wish to pair students up to make this a more cooperative learning activity, or just keep them in a small group.
Skills/strategies practiced: synonyms, compound words, making inferences, determining the meanings of unknown words, counting syllables, and proper nouns.
Use the writing activity or fact poster as an culminating activity.
This would make great independent research for students with an interest in researching backyard critters.
This set also included in my End Of The Year Activities Bundle.
