Today at the McSpedden Library our 3rd graders came to the library to do some hands on learning with nonfiction text features. In their classrooms our students have been learning about nonfiction text features for a few weeks.
The teachers wanted to see the kids identify the correct text features in nonfiction books. So, I pulled several nonfiction books that had the types of text features that our teachers were focusing on. I created these Nonfiction Text Features QR Code Station Signs and this Nonfiction Text Features Reading Response. I placed the books and the QR Code Station signs around on the tables. I also checked out 2 iPad carts from technology so that each student could have their own iPad for the activity. I also created an answer key for each teacher as they wanted to take a grade on this assessment.
The students had a lot of fun using the iPads and locating the nonfiction text features on the images and in the real books!
