CCSS Informational Text 1: Quote accurately from a text when explaining
what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
CCSS Informational Text 2: Determine two or more main ideas of a text and
explain how they are supported by key details; summarize the text.
Learning Objectives:

The students will be able to glean information from a graphic source in

order to support their reading.
The students will be able to identify a main idea and at least two
supporting ideas for that main idea.

Written assignment
Adaptations and Accommodations:
Students were paired together for reading, and had the option of doing their
written assignment together.
Reading Street, white board
Academic Language:
Critical, Enables, Mucus, Scarce, Specialize, Sterile, Mimicry, Camouflage,
Spiny, Survival, Formidable, Protrude, Survival, Adaptation
Anticipatory Set:
Statement of Objective or Purpose:
Today we will continue working on our written assignment of writing a
paragraph about an animal that adapts in order to survive. The paragraph
should have at least four sentences and include two details.
Sequence of Activities:

Give students 10-15 minutes to finish up their writing assignment.

Students who are done can work on reading packet pages.
Have pairs share their paragraphs with the whole class.
Discuss the different types of adaptations that animals or insects have
that help them to survive.

Questions to ask:

How do animals adapt to survive?

Conclusion and Summary:

This week, we took a deep look at animals abilities to adapt. For many
animals, the ways they adapt allow them to survive. For others, it provides a
means of living more comfortably in the climate or environment they are
native to.
Self Evaluation and Reflection:
I thought sharing as a group was a good way to bring this topic to a close. I
feel like the students have a strong understanding of the different
adaptations that creatures use in order to survive. I felt like the reading
lessons went alright for my first week of doing them. Hopefully I will grow
more comfortable with the curriculum and put my own twist on the activities
in future weeks.
