April 26th is Richter Scale Day. This Earthquakes reading packet is perfect for celebrating this unique holiday, a mini Science unit, or an informational reading unit! It has been a great hit with many teachers and reluctant readers.
The informational passage included in this resource is provided in two differentiated reading levels. One is in the fifth-sixth grade reading range, and the other is in the third-fourth grade reading level range. I’ve taken all the guesswork out of differentiating and leveling of passages for you!
This packet is both rigorous and Common-Core aligned. 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 5 tasks/activities for the passage, moving from easier tasks to more challenging activities.
