Integrate reading into your weather unit by encouraging students to explore different genres, by creating a reading corner, and by comparing fiction and non-fiction books on weather.
Three ways to integrate reading into your weather unit include:
Weather Tic-Tac-Toe Board
Give each student a tic-tac-toe board and have them form either one, two, or three lines on the board. The middle space is a free space. CLICK on the image of the tic-tac-toe board to download a template:
Gather resources about weather (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) and create a reading corner that students can visit to read alone or with a partner. Encourage students to visit the reading corner in their spare time.
Weather Fiction and Non-Fiction Venn Diagram
Divide students into groups of 2 or 3 students. Give each set of students a fiction book and a non-fiction book about weather. Students read the books together and then complete a Venn Diagram to compare the similarities and differences between the two books.
