This pack integrates ELA, science, writing, and hands-on experiments. It is a close reading and writing unit designed for young learners. The lessons carefully scaffold from teacher modeling, to guided practice, to partner practice, then to independent student practice. Each rock section consists of a 3 part close reading lesson. After teacher modeling, students will read the differentiated text, text code, answer text dependent questions, and take notes.
Once all three rocks are taught, students will use their notes to make a rock trading card as a culminating writing project.
This unit is versatile to meet the needs of any classroom. The student books were carefully written with 1-2 students in mind. We have spent several years designing close reading lessons that cater to primary students. These lessons are rigorous yet appropriate for young learners.
