I think that a lot of teachers are putting extra emphasis on nonfiction these days with state testing! So, thank you so much for this. As a fifth grade teacher, I am especially appreciative of your effort to encourage primary teachers to teach these kinds of skills. It will definitely help students as they move into the upper grades!
I was wondering if you could share with us your mystery activity you did with the students by telling us the website you created. I would be interested in seeing how this looks. I would bet the kids had a blast doing this!!!
