We have started our bat unit again this week and are having a blast! Here’s a little post from last year so you can see what we are up to:
It has been a batty week in room 219! Not just crazy, but we have been learning all about bats!
So far this year I have noticed that many of my fourthies are reluctant to read nonfiction texts. In order to encourage this, I wanted to start with a less intimidating research project, that I could throw a little fun in, too! This was week 1 of 2 on bats.. Here’s a sneak peek at our week:
Our objectives this week were:
-Understanding Nonfiction Text Structure: Focusing on Description, Cause and Effect, and Compare and Contrast
-Identifying Main Idea and Supporting Details
-Summarizing Nonfiction Text
-Writing a descriptive research paper on a topic
