Common Core Task Description: This task asks students to write an informative text and use information/facts to write a report about what was learned. This 3-4 week unit leads students in an exploration of informational texts. Read alouds and structured conversations are used to guide students in the process of using an informational text as a learning tool (i.e., gathering facts from what an author has written). Students then use what they have learned from a mentor text to create their own teaching text. Extensions for continued learning around frogs are included.
