LInking non fiction to fiction in k-3

July 23, 2013 - 10:32am -- Jennifer M.

We have a Basal type cirriculum here where I am, and it is overwhelming to me to think about the HOW of finding non fiction that relates to some of the topics... The dinosaur unit is an easy one, but what do you do with something like Friendship?

Our basal series has at least one non- fiction story in each unit that ties in with the theme.  Have them think about their real friendships and compare them with the stories, or I have found that Scholastic News has most of the topics in one of their publications that match the standards for grade levels in Science, Social Studoies, and Health.
