Nonfiction Unit

This is a picture of our theme wall. We just finished our Penguin Unit. We studied the text structure of nonfiction books, we compared nonfiction and fiction books, and we learned how to determine importance from a nonfiction book. We also studied fiction books. We compared stories by the same author and we retold the stories we read by writing in our response journals.

We are continuing to study nonfiction this week. The snow days really changed the timeline of this study. This week we are reading a nonfiction book about frogs by Gail Gibbons. The students made the outline of their report before the snow days and took them home to work on them.

We will move on to our America Unit next week!
