Day 5: "Rock Secrets"

This task requires students to integrate the information they learned in the previous days in order to determine what the author means by 'every rock has a secret story.' The teacher should read the text aloud one more time before students complete the task. 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.
