This lesson focuses on examining the text in order to determine how raptors function as predators. The day begins with a rereading of the entire text followed by an intentional revisiting of certain sections. Students may work in a group or with a partner as they answer the text-dependent questions and record their answers on a sheet of paper. Students will work independently to determine why a raptor is considered a predator. This series of close reading lesson plans was created by a member of the 2015 Delaware Dream Team.
