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

CLOSE READ: EPIPHYTES OF THE RAINFOREST AND THE CREATURES THAT CALL THEM HOME (PAGES 24-26)

The opening of this lesson involves a review activity called Hot Seat. If you review Questioning Strategies to Engage All Learners (Appendix 1), you’ll see that Hot Seat is one of many strategies listed. In Hot Seat, students find a question or card underneath or on their seats. They then respond to a question or define a vocabulary word by either sketching it or acting it out.
