This upload is a great variety of resources that will allow students to work on the same topic, yet avoid satiation. I would however separate the word-search page from the independent research page. I would re-write pages 4, 6, to make the questions text dependent. This would increase the rigor for the 6/7/8th grade students. I would also use the subject in each question, so my students start to respond in the same manner-For example: Where do Kangaroo rats live, and why? I would also give a vocabulary answer sheet that uses words that my students my need for reference after they complete the activity to make sure they have the definitions I want them to know. I like the way you let students know that they cannot use your example!!!--P.9 p.16--Many(((People))) confuse the spelling of desert (dry land) and dessert (a yummy treat!) I would also label the Poem as an Acrostic poem so my students start using L.A. vocabulary across contents. "Click here" link on page 20 is a broken link.
