Students will be able to ask and answer questions (Who, what, where, when, why, and how) about an informational text.
Students will ask questions about pictures of a butterfly and a cocoon. They will reflect on the words they used to ask questions and standup if any of the questions they asked contained "Who," "What," "Where," "When," "Why," and/or "How." Explain why is it important to ask and answer questions when reading.
Go over each question word. Encourage students to think of questions that start with each of these words ("Who," "What," "Where," "When," "Why," "How"). Read a passage about Abraham Lincoln and have students answer the questions, "Who?" and "What?" Next, they will highlight the answers to "Where?" and "When?" Then, they will highlight the answers to "Why?" and "How?"
