RI.3.7 Lesson Plans

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.3.7

:
"Use information gained from illustrations (e.g., maps, photographs) and the words in a text to demonstrate understanding of the text (e.g., where, when, why, and how key events occur)."

Our Take: Find reading material for third graders that includes images such as maps and illustrations, specifically those that add context and details to the text. Use both the words and images to help lead in-depth discussions and to prompt students to write at length about the text.

These lesson plans can help students practice this Common Core State Standards skill.
