Day 3: "Raising Raptors"

This lesson is designed to help students build knowledge about how young raptors rely on their parents for survival. The lesson begins with a rereading of the text. Students then independently read the "Feeding their Young," "Defending their Nest," and "Flight School." Students may work in small groups or with partners to revisit the text and answer the text-dependent questions, recording their answers on a sheet of paper. The focus question should be answered independently. 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.
