My BIG Nonfiction Researchers
Students have been SO excited about reading nonfiction books, researching a particular animal, and learning so many new facts!! The first two pictures were the "research" that we did together as a class to try to figure out just how big a baby gray whale is and how much it weighs as an adult gray whale. We talked about how you don't just read nonfiction from one cover to the end. Instead, you can read one fact and think about it, make comparisons, and reread it several times so that you understand what the book is teaching you.
