Reflection: Lesson Planning What's the problem here? - Section 3: Building Background Knowledge

 

If you don’t subscribe to Scholastic and are looking for other options for short texts that follow this structure, I highly recommend searching for articles about natural disasters. It is a perfect topic to study the problem and solution structure and usually include various text features, such as charts and maps that you can incorporate into your lessons. Here is a list of websites I go to when looking for other sources of quality, informational texts that are free:

 

Time for Kids

National Geographic for Kids

DOGO News

Education World News

CNN Student News
