Raz-Plus resources organized into weekly content-based units and differentiated instruction options.
Explore geography and climate from the tropics to the subarctic in the
Trip on a Latitude Line collection. These books, all at Level R, are
part of Learning A-Z's Themed Nonfiction Series. Descriptive text with
sensory details about weather, seasons, and natural and human-made
sights and sounds help readers experience locations along four
different latitudes around the globe.
Students who understand geography and climate begin to understand
how different cultures develop around the world. Landforms, bodies
of water, the Sun, and Earth's tilt all affect the climate of a
place and how different people live—from what they eat to how they
dress. Students read about how the world is full of variety—even
along the same latitude line.
The books are written at the same reading level and include common
themes and ideas that develop across all the texts. Students can
compare and contrast books or analyze the set as a whole to make
connections and draw conclusions about the concepts presented.
Start students reading with Explorer's Guide to World Weather to lay the foundation of concepts they will explore in the four other books in the series. Each of the other books explores one latitude line all the way around the globe. The series can be read in any order.
