Day 3: "Deserts"

In this lesson students will use text features to inform their understanding of camels. The focus question addresses the survival of animals, just like previous questions focused on the survival of plants in the desert. This ties in with the big takeaway ideas that students will need to know by the end of the lesson. 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, "Deserts" by Gail Gibbons.
