Weekly Reader Connections

Teacher Guide: Unit 2

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

Have students read the article “Who Was the First in Flight?” on their own and then complete the Word Wise activity, if time allows. Check students' stories to be sure they use each of the Word Wise terms correctly.

The Data Hunt activity asks students to organize data from the article to prepare for a debate. You may explain to students that a debate is an organized event in which 2 individuals or teams take turns presenting their side of an argument. You may give them the Preparing for a Debate worksheet (PDF file) for additional support.
