FREE SCIENCE LESSON - “Animals Nonfiction Text for Reading Comprehension Freebie”

by Science and STEAM Team
3rd - 5th Grade

This non-fiction text contains two reading passages about some very fascinating animals that I've encountered. It was made with the NGSS in the area of life sciences in mind. The articles are on a low to high third grade reading level, but the passages are even interesting for adults! They are perfect for early finishers, for use in centers, and for whole and small group reading.

There are a variety graphic organizers to fill in as the students are reading.
