I am using this article as a resource for a 10-day unit on animals and habitats I am planning as a pre-service teacher. I love the idea of using trade books in science because it allows students to apply language arts skills in a new context. This resource also gave detailed explanations that would help a teacher guide students through the beginning, middle, and end of a lesson--which is helpful for new teachers! I look forward to using elements of this resource in my lesson.
