Day 4: "Rock Secrets"

This lesson focuses on the image of the volcano. Students will need to dive into the text and use the image of the volcano to help them answer the focus question. This helps students prepare for the culminating writing task because it allows the students to understand another way rocks are formed on Earth. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text. Students will need a copy of the student notes sheet.
