EngageNY Grade 5 ELA Module 2a, Unit 2: Case Study: The Most Beautiful Roof in the World and the Work of Rainforest Scientist Meg Lowman

Collector: Ann V.

Fifth graders continue their investigation of the process scientists use to research by reading Kathryn Lasky’s The Most Beautiful Roof in the World: Exploring the Rainforest Canopy, the story of Meg Lowman, and the research methods she used during her stays in the canopy of the rainforest. Scholars also learn how to compare literature (a short story) with informational text (articles, interviews, videos) about the rainforest. As a final assessment, individuals craft an essay to analyze how Lowman researches biodiversity in the rainforest.
