Why Lesson Planet?
Let’s learn about frogs! Young readers are led through “Freaky Frogs,” a non-fiction article. Teach learners how to edit an article so there are fewer details to sift through. After talking through the article, they learn the six steps of summarizing, starting with creating a word web. Pupils then work in pairs to create their own word webs for the article. This instructional activity is more appropriate for intermediate readers, but it could be adapted for any age.
