Common Core Content Activity: Author’s Purpose
Author’s Purpose: In these activities, we learn about understanding Authors Purpose. The students are introduced to a set of twins (Sara and Tony) who are traveling with their parents throughout Kentucky and learning how to determine the author’s purpose and how to use different devices. Sara and Tony explore 6 different vacation spots. Throughout the unit the students practice all activities on real life examples.
Each activity is completed on two different levels for differentiated instruction.
