Close Reading about Sharks
We have been infusing STEM in our language arts classes. Our fourth and fifth grade reading classes have been reading about great white shark population recovery in a Weekly Reader edition and a related National Geographic article. Students have been analyzing the vocabulary words of the National Geographic article as well as analyzing the similarities and differences between the two articles. Students will be using the OCEARCH website, which was mentioned in the Weekly Reader, and using it to collect data and track shark migration.
