A Butterfly Collection: Cross Text Analysis

“There is nothing in a caterpillar that tells you it’s going to be a butterfly” (Buckminster Fuller). And the teaching point of this resource is that to understand as much as possible about a topic, a savvy researcher reads a variety of texts about the topic and does a cross-text analysis of the information. To practice this skill, pupils read two poems, an editorial, and an encyclopedia excerpt regarding butterflies and then fill out the cross-text analysis graphic organizer.

I am a first year homeschool mom. I found Lesson Planet and was impressed with the amount of resources that are available online! I have been able to find content that was age appropriate and relevant to the areas my 3 kids are studying. And knowing that these are plans created by teachers makes me confident in presenting the material to my children.
