  • Informational Text Pack for January: Peanuts and Peanut Butter

    $3.75

    This Informational Text Pack begins with “January 24th:  National Peanut Butter Day in the U.S.”.  The article focuses on one of our favorite foods and traces its development from its South American roots, through its growth in popularity, to its debut as a homogenized smooth or crunchy commercial product.  It also introduces students to “arachibutyrophobia,” the terrible, awful, debilitating fear of getting peanut butter stuck to the roof of one’s mouth.

    The second article “How the Peanuts Gang Got Its Name” takes a look at how Charles Schulz was forced to give up the original name he attached to his famous cast of characters and accept one he never warmed up to—“Peanuts!”

    Each text is two pages long and comes with a set of 15 CCSS aligned questions.
    Full answer keys, with specific CCSS alignments listed for each question, are included.

    As a bonus, I have added a two-page list of left-over peanut and peanut butter facts that students can use to write their own informational texts.   Or, teachers can easily transform them into task cards.
