Non-fiction Reading • As we are moving into the Common Core adoption, non-fiction reading in the reading classroom is becoming more and more prevalent. The National Geographic is a reliable source to use in the classroom as that non-fiction piece.
Main Idea and Details • Students worked with non-fiction text to find main idea and detail using headings and subheading.
Finding Text Evidence • The common core also requires students to support their answers with text evidence. The essential questions included in the National Geographic's lend themselves perfectly to this activity.
Student Engagement • Because National Geographic's cover topics of student interest, it is easy to keep them engaged. Students love learning about strange animals, places, and occurrences.
