Feature Articles Text Set

I specifically used an article entitled “Oh Gross: Dead skin, barf, poop – the truth about some animal meals can be pretty hard to swallow.” This article was all about how some animals eat disgusting things. I used this article to introduce my students to the concept of a feature article because it fit the definition of being both informative and engaging. I scanned the article so students could follow along while I read from the Promethean Board. Since the article was longer, we took a few days to read all of it.

I specifically used an article called “Eating in Space.” This article was also highly engaging and informative. I chose this article to highlight that feature articles can be about more topics than just animals. Click magazine is also written at a lower reading level than Ranger Rick which made it more accessible for my struggling readers.

I used several feature articles from this magazine for my mentor text set for my unit of study.  There were different types of articles to really show them the variety of feature articles.  A great magazine for travel brochures or feature articles!

Another great resource for feature articles that I used with my class.  A lot of information in varying styles - yet all feature articles!
