This lesson focuses on the features or signposts of information texts. It will lead the children to use the skill of skim-reading to help them to evaluate the usefulness of information texts and to speed up their investigative reading. The more fun the children have within this lesson, the easier they will find it to use and appreciate the skill they are learning. Depending on the class dynamic, this lesson could be made into one big competition with time limits and/or point systems for each activity.
WALT • Spot and talk about different parts of information texts, so we can use them to help us find specific information. • Make up questions about a topic and learn to skim read, so we can find out the general idea of the text.
