Grade 3 ELA Module 2B, Unit 2, Lesson 12


In this lesson, students will work in their same groups. Now, however, they will read their Exploring Countries texts and will be referred to as Research Groups. This name change is done to help focus students on their current task: researching information based on non-fiction text (rather than reading a chapter book). Students should still meet in the same designated meeting spots during Work Time.
