Grade 3 ELA - Module 1, Unit 3
Unit 3: In this unit, students will explore how geography impacts readers’ access to books. All instruction in this unit builds toward the final performance task for the module: an informative “Accessing Books around the World” bookmark. In the first part of the unit, students will read informational texts about world geography as they build vocabulary and understanding related to physical features and how physical characteristics of a region influence how people access books. Students then will explore external resources that support the power of reading, focusing on the important role of libraries.
Grade 3, Module 1, Unit 3 Recommended Texts: These texts are provided as recommended resources which relate to the theme of the unit. Lexile scores are provided to provide appropriate independent reading for each student to build content knowledge about the topic. Districts may substitute other books as appropriate and available.
