Grade 5 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 1

Teacher helping elementary students

BUILDING BACKGROUND KNOWLEDGE: EXAMINING THE UNIQUE LIVING THINGS OF THE RAINFORESTS AND THE SCIENTISTS WHO STUDY THEM

In this lesson, students set up their reading journal, in which they will keep the majority of the notes and record of their learning during the module. A spiral or composition notebook would work well for this purpose. Take time with this, because it is a very important component of the module.
