4th Grade RI Informational Digital Passages



These 4th 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. They are 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 fourth grade students. There are a total of 55 passages for fourth 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 are reformatted. They now work in Google Classroom.

These texts have been professionally leveled by Lexile. The scores are in the top right-hand corner of each passage.
