Earth Day reading passage perfect for upper elementary and middle school students

 Do you want to recognize Earth Day but you don't have the time to take away from Reading and Writing instruction?

Hi friends,

A short post today.  If you are looking for a passage about Earth Day for your students to practice reading comprehension skills, look no further.

I wrote this passage because I wanted something that wasn't as cute as passages for younger grades, but that honored and taught about the day.  Written at two levels so you can differentiate, it's provided in digital and pdf versions.  

Reading comprehension questions require students to think about words in context, make inferences, and determine nonfiction text structure. A final short-answer question asks students to write persuasively about an Earth Day project they think should be implemented.
