The Classroom Energy Diet Challenge

This activity was our first exposure to reading an "article". I presented the photo in the article from "Times for Kids" on our classroom computer and asked students what they thought this article might be about. Students made excellent predictions. Next, I read the article to the class and paraphrased some parts to ensure clarity and comprehension. Then, students made connections with the problem the article presented and the information they learned from the amazing Non-Fiction books we have been working with. We met as a large group to model the format of the letter and discussed how important it is to have an "opinion" and to have the "Right" to agree or disagree with what someone else might think!
