EngageNY Grade 5 ELA Module 2a, Unit 1: Building Background Knowledge: How Scientists Communicate About the Living Things of the Rainforest

Collector: Ann V.

In the first unit of a three-unit module, young scientists gather background knowledge about the rainforest's biodiversity. They learn how to identify the main idea in an interview and an article and practice notetaking, synthesizing, and comparing informational texts. Scholars demonstrate what they have learned for the mid-unit and final assessments by answering text-dependent questions and writing about unfamiliar informational text about the rainforests and the scientists who study them.
