Description

Read two text passages on rabbits and compare them. This unit includes two informational text passages and lots of follow-up pages to help students compare and contrast the two informational text passages on rabbits. Designed to meet the CCSS for reading informational text in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade.

The first article is on Rabbit Adaptations and the second article is on Rabbit Life and Behavior. This unit is great for science literacy and is no prep. Just print and use. Great for spring reading or Easter activities. Great for teaching students about structural and behavioral adaptations and animal group living.

Each article is one page long and there are 10 follow-up pages and a writing activity. Response pages encourage students to read back into the text to answer the questions.

Students will learn that rabbits are animals that have unique adaptations for surviving. Using their reading informational text skills, students will compare the two texts on rabbits.

This resource includes two reading passages, reading responses, follow-up pages, brainstorming pages, a writing page, and a top-tab book. Students will look at the main ideas and supporting details within each passage.

This is a science literacy unit that is great for Easter or spring. Students will read and write informational text in this rabbit unit.

Did you know that rabbits have behavioral adaptations such as thumping their foot to warn other rabbits of danger?

Did you know that female rabbits in colonies will often all give birth at the same time? This strategy is called ecosystem flooding as the ecosystem is flooded with so many prey animals that they cannot possibly all be eaten by predators.

Did you know rabbits’ large ears are not only for hearing? A rabbit’s ears help them to stay cool in hot weather. Have your students read all about these and other interesting rabbit adaptations and behaviors in the great informational text unit on rabbits.

My students loved this unit. I was able to present different elements of it throughout the month. It is hard to find interesting non-fictional, age-appropriate text for my students that they will enjoy. This was a great unit that aligned well for my students who have very different goals within the same group.

I am so impressed with this unit which manages to be distance learning and hands-on at the same time.  Really well thought out and engaging activities that allow students to practice each of the eight Science and Engineering Practices.  Really no prep for me!

The elephant article was excellent but I also thought the lab on dissecting a flower was broken down so easily, even telling me where to get inexpensive flowers!  This resource helped me teach this challenging standard in an engaging way.  Worth every penny!
