Lesson Plan Description

This is a 1-hour, fully scripted Third Grade ELA lesson plan using a printable Informational Life Science text, “Winter Survival,” by Jennifer Kaul. This lesson includes: close reading comprehension techniques, practicing identifying key details, determining the meaning of unknown vocabulary, and classifying information (RI.3.1-3.4). Students will take literal interpretation of informational text to evaluation and synthesizing. They will also complete a graphic organizer to classify three animal species and how they survive winter.

It addresses Third Grade Life Science NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). LS2.C: Ecosystem Dynamics, Functioning, and Resilience When the environment changes in ways that affect a place’s physical characteristics, temperature, or availability of resources, some organisms survive and reproduce, others move to new locations, yet others move into the transformed environment, and some die. (secondary to 3-LS4-4)
