This lesson lays the groundwork for the remaining four days of close reading instruction. Students will gain familiarity with the text through a read aloud. Today's focus question addresses the ways in which our bodies protect us from viruses. Students must use information from the text to determine what a virus is, how it invades and how our bodies fight back. Students may work in pairs or small groups to complete the supporting questions, but the focus question should be completed independently. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the anchor text. Graphic Organizer may be used for note-taking. (Optional)
