Considering Perspectives and Supporting Opinions


In this module, students engage in reading, writing, listening, and speaking to build knowledge of simple machines and how they impact force, effort, and work. Students begin by reading some basic informational text. They then read out loud and perform a short Readers Theater (written for classroom use) about simple machines in order to continue building background knowledge about simple machines while also learning the structural elements of drama and practicing reading fluently.
