Grade 5 ELA Module 2A, Unit 1, Lesson 8

SYNTHESIZING INFORMATION: LIVING THINGS IN THE RAINFOREST

In this lesson, students reread several texts that they have seen in other lessons. Be sure that students have access to the texts read in all previous lessons; prepare additional texts as needed.

In this lesson, students will be introduced to note taking as a step in the research process. Today they practice taking notes with texts they already know fairly well. Students will have many more opportunities in Unit 3 to practice and master note taking.
