Description

This is a Very Low Prep Unit! Just print and use! Students will love this CLOSE reading unit on Coral Reefs that addresses the Reading Informational Text standards while promoting science literacy. The reading level is appropriate for 5th-7th grade. See more about this coral reef reading unit here.

Students will begin by viewing a slide show presentation on coral reefs. The slide show is editable for teacher convenience. The slide show will provide background information for students prior to the reading.

This reading unit has a science theme and students will learn about the delicate ecosystem of a coral reef. They will learn why coral reefs are important and they will learn how to protect coral reefs. Students will learn that many animals that live on the coral reef have interesting adaptations for surviving in this habitat. Students will also learn about coral and the interesting life cycle of coral.

Students will read a three-page article on coral reefs and will respond to three pages of comprehension questions that encourage them to look back into the text.

Students will also be delighted with the wonderful interactive notebook flaps included. More than 10 different flaps!

Additional research will be done using QR codes or clickable links.

There is an additional reading passage included on fish and an interactive notebook flap to go with it.

If done as the schedule suggests, this will take about 7 days to complete. It has over 50 pages/slides.

This resource also comes with word wall words, including blanks and one page that is editable so that you can add your own words.

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!
