This lesson focuses on describing the scientific concept found within a certain section of the anchor text, "Ever Wondered How It Snows" by Moira E. McLaughlin, from KidsPost. The day begins with a teacher read aloud of the given section of the text (paragraph #4). Students are then asked to engage in close rereading of this section as well. Students will then complete a student guided notes sheet to capture their thinking concerning the supporting questions from the lesson. The focus question should be completed independently, after a whole group discussion about the scientific concept presented in the selected section of the text. Special Materials: Materials Needed: 1) Copies of anchor text for each student 2) Copies of student guided notes sheet for each student
