Exploring Text Features

Do you want your students to read the whole page - - - not just the text, but the graphics too? This handy little freebie will work with any informational text. Using the graphic organizer, students provide the section title; identify three graphics found in the section and analyze their purpose and importance; and summarize the text.

My students will be analyze sections of their science text tomorrow. I'll bet that they'll be surprised to find out what they've been missing by skipping the pictures, graphs, tables, and diagrams! Enjoy!
