This 2nd Grade RI Informational Digital Passages are standards-based activities for students to use when focusing on information, or nonfiction standards. These are perfect for Google Classroom and they’re made in Google Slides! Students will read the standards-based passages, annotate their text, then answer comprehension questions about the text and the standard. They are all Common-Core standards-based passages for second grade students. There are a total of 89 passages for 2nd graders to use with informational, or nonfiction texts.

Keep in mind that these passages are a digital version of the passages that come from my non-digital ELA units. They’ve been reformatted so that they work in Google Classroom.
