Comparing And Contrasting Two Texts About Poison Dart Frogs: Poison!


This lesson is the first of three in a series in which students compare and contrast sections of two texts about the poison dart frog.

In these three lessons, Part A of Work Time reinforces close reading skills students built during Unit 1. Part B of Work Time introduces a specific “listening closely” process in which students listen to excerpts from Poison Dart Frogs Up Close read aloud, twice, and then take notes. Then in Part C, students get to see the text that was read aloud during Part B.
