One of the standards covered in Literacy objects from Common Core is students being able to connect text features to the supporting text in a fiction or non-fiction book. This is a lesson plan I recently created and implemented in a local 2nd-grade classroom. I had a blast, the students rose to the challenge, and we learned lots about their ability to communicate (both written and verbally) their connections between the text and text features in books about different endangered species! Included in this lesson plan are the resources needed (including books and a worksheet I created), lesson plan outline, pictures, along with reflections and adaptations that I would make in the future.

At the end of this post are some other resources I found about endangered species lesson plans that you could add to your curriculum to extend the topic of these animals for one whole week!
