Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 8

The Weekly Reader Connections feature on Kids' Place Houghton Mifflin Math provides children with additional information about the topics that appear in the Curriculum Connection feature in their student books.

The article “Discover Great Smoky Mountains National Park” gives children information about moths and butterflies that scientists found in the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

Have children read the article on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity. The activity asks children to fill in a chart with information about moths and butterflies. You may give children the Butterflies and Moths (PDF file) worksheet for this activity.
