Do you know a kid who isn’t interested in frogs? I honestly do not think I’ve met one, and what better way to draw a child into a tough lesson than with a book you KNOW they will love. Frogs! by National Geographic has the most amazing photos, and it’s perfect for modeling nonfiction text structures.
To build excitement prior to reading, teachers might show this Youtube video from National Geographic. I think the pictures are just amazing, and I know my kids would love them.
This free resource is for teaching text features. It is shown with a book about penguins, but can be used with any nonfiction book.
