Who Would Win? FREEBIE

Have you ever wondered who would win in a fight?  Jerry Pallotta has a series of books called,  Who Would Win? These books are AMAZING.  The pictures and facts grab the attention of the Littles and keep them hanging on every word.  Before I read them the story I asked them,  "If a polar bear and a grizzly bear got in a fight, who would win?"  I had them complete the first section of their WHO WOULD WIN? paper by drawing their prediction and stating their reasoning.  Then,  I had them draw another picture to add to our class graph.  We discussed the results of our graph and our thinking.  Then,  I read the story and we were amazed to find out that a Grizzly Bear would probably win.  We talked about the evidence in the text that supports the authors reasoning.  Then,  I had them draw and write about what we found out.

There are several books in this series so I didn't add the title to the recording sheet so that you could use it for any of the books.  

Have a great week!

  12. Love these books. If you download Storia (free from Scholastic) you get 5 free books. And one of them was the Polar Bear VS. Grizzly Bear. My son and kids at school loved it. I also got 5 additonal books for ordering book orders through scholastic. You can get the animated books with bonus points or buy them. Also, they give you a lot of bonuses. If you aren't familiar with Storia you can set up a "bookcase" for each student and assign them books from your Storia account. It's VERY fun and a great rotation during Daily 5. Enjoy!

  13. My son LOVES these books. We have all of them. Can't wait to do this with my class! Thank you!!!
