Going deeper into nonfiction texts is essential to student mastery of common core standards. Want ways to integrate social studies and science content into your nonfiction instruction, while differentiating for the needs of all learners? Look no further than these differentiated close reading passages and comprehension questions about Food Chains and Food Webs. In this product, there are three nonfiction-reading passages based on Food Chains and Food Webs. If your classroom is like mine, there are readers all over the spectrum, yet it is vital that all students understand these important concepts. I've created each passage on three different reading levels to make differentiation much easier. I've leveled each passage with its Lexile reading level. There are also higher-order thinking comprehension questions AND multiple choice questions that correspond with the passages that include an answer key. Lexile levels included: 710-820-1030.
