ASKING AND ANSWERING QUESTIONS: READING ABOUT A FROG’S HABITAT
This lesson gives students an authentic opportunity to practice the skill of skimming for information efficiently. Students are guided through the process of skimming. They are purposely given a chance to “have a go” at this new skill with less direct teacher modeling. Attend carefully to how students are using this skill during the lesson. Note students who weren’t able to find the identified frogs, and confer with them first as you circulate around the room.
