Activity Overview

An exceptional way to help your students follow a text is to have them track the important details. This helps students develop a greater understanding of how the events fit together to provide the overall structure of the text.

This example identifies six main parts:

  • Eyes help the falcon spot dinner in the grass below. Eyes on the mouse will help him find a safe place away from the falcon.
  • Animal and human eyes catch bouncing light in order to see.
  • Light, from a variety of sources, bounces, or reflects, off a surface which causes it to be seen by the eyeball.
  • The light enters the cornea. The cornea bends, or refracts, the light.
  • Next, light enters your pupil passing through the lens. The lens bends light further, allowing the image to focus.
  • The image appears upside down on your retina. Your brain flips it right side up.
