Integrate and with these Matter CLOSE reading passages! These reading passages are great to use as an introduction to Matter or to use as review and reinforcement over already taught content. The entire packet is a NO-PREP, PRINT AND GO bundle, making it perfect for substitute assignments.
Need a digital option? No problem! I have included BOTH a print and digital version of this resource, making it great for flipped classrooms, distance learning, online courses, and traditional face-to-face classrooms. (: the digital version comes as a Google Slides document)
⭐Intro to Matter (Lexile Levels: 800 & 1050)
⭐Phases of Matter (Lexile Levels: 800 & 1000)
⭐7 pages of Reading Comprehension Assessments
⭐: All About Matter Webquest Activity
⭐Annotating Guide and Close Reading Instructions
⭐Digital (Google Slides) version
The “Intro to Matter” and “Phases of Matter” reading comprehension passages are provided in two differentiated levels, distinguishable ONLY by a small icon on the bottom of the page. The reading comprehension activities/worksheets are the same. The “All About Matter” WebQuest activity requires the use of technology.
Please see the PREVIEW for an idea of everything included!
If you have never used Close Reading or even if you are already a pro, this print and go packet truly is for you! It has everything you need for a complete, successful informational text reading/science lesson.
This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned and can be used in a variety of grade levels. I use it in my high school inclusion classes, but it has been used by middle and upper elementary school teachers with great reviews. Please see the Lexile levels to determine if these passages will fit your students’ needs. Questions have been carefully crafted to move readers from basic, recall questions to higher-level questions where students must cite evidence from the text to support their answers. There are 3 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities.
►►These reading passages pair GREAT with my MATTER REVIEW MAZE activity!
