Exploring non-fiction

Curious Apple banner
To end the week, I am featuring one last learning menu. This one was found over at The Curious Apple, a blog maintained by Jennifer, a creative fourth-grade teacher. This menu will help in the teaching of informational text. Choices include exploring vocabulary words, uncovering fun facts and teasing out main idea vs. facts.

Read the entire post on Jennifer’s blog to get ideas for using this menu. One idea I really like was integrating the menu into interactive notebooks for the purpose of elaborating on findings and keeping related materials organized.
